  1. Cheers totally understand your point of view. I'm handy with the spanner but not desperate.
  2. Hi Runcajs.

    Just reading your stuff on the IP. It is really informative. I am looking at a 2002 Patrol GU and the only thing that makes me hesitate, is the terrible IP reputation and the cost to fix it. The car i have been looking at is owned by and old mechanic you changed the oil , oil and fuel filters every 5000km and always used fuel injector cleaner (and kept record of doing so). would his extra care shown possibly extend the life of the pump. This car has done 25000km and my mechanic say he does a lot of patrol (pre common rail) IP's at around 30000km. His opinion is don't do near it i'd appreciated your opinion. If you think it could be OK should I go ahead with the lift pump mod you suggest.  Thanks again great advice
