Biofuel Hello, I have at Toyota Hilux 04 D4D 2.5 engine, with the rising cost of diesel I was wondering if I could run the engine on a 50/50 basis with pure waste cooking oil & diesel. What do you think ? Thanks in advance Gerard

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.

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.

Toyota diesel hilux D4D noisy engine.just fitted. sounds like bottom end?


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.

Hi there!

I think you will probably have to use two sources of information for work in this.

Info on the Toyota Diesel engine is downladable from this Website -

http://pdftown.com/Toyota-Engine-1KZ-TE3-Litre-Turbo-Diesel-Hilux-4WD-Service-Manual.html

And a copy of the Haynes manual for the Petrol version is available Here for a reasonable cost -

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/FREE-POST-UK-HAYNES-TOYOTA-AVENSIS-R-52-B-NEW-MANUAL_W0QQitemZ140241391104QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item140241391104&_trkparms=72%3A12%7C39%3A1%7C65%3A12&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14

Most sections will be covered between these two sources.

If this resolves your question, please rate as Fixya.
Thank you.
