Question about 2006 Toyota Hilux 3.0
The Pick up 2.4 diesel engine D4D has a hard start in the morning, but ok after the first start, I have to keep on refilling the oil as well
Have a compression test done to determine the engine condition. With the hard start and oil usage it points to a worn rings and a lower compression pressure than is required.

Take the Vehicle back to the Installer/Supplier, for a Free of Charge CHECK and ADVISE under New Engine Warranty. If the OIL PRESSURE is LOW, when starting up from COLD, there is a genuine fault, so do not drive any distance.

The starting issue could be due to a bad battery. Hard starting in the morning is usually associated with the cold. Low temperatures, create hard starting/cranking for your battery.
You will see a CCA rating on your battery, in my 4wd it is 600CCA that means it has 600 Cold Cranking Amps. That means it is the amount of current my battery can provide at O deg F. Car manufacturers only use cheap standard duty batteries.
If it is a 4 speed automatic with a power/ecconomy button it won't engage overdrive. You put it in ecconomy for normal driving and power for towing.

It's possible your Hilux would run on that blend, but I don't believe Toyota would honor any warranty repairs (if you have any warranty). The cooking oil would have to be filtered to remove any particles, contaminants, or moisture before using it as these things would cause problems with your fuel system. Cooking oil will also gel up as the weather cools, so you would have to find a way to warm the oil to prevent that from happening. You would also have to find a way to keep the cooking oil and diesel fuel from separating.

Check the connection to crank sensor, if wiring is good and connection is clean then replace the crank sensor and reset the code, this is the first step, the computer could be a problem also but most times its the crankshaft sensor. good day
