    TeePee, This has the 1KZTE engine which is IDI, with a mechanical, rotary Injector Pump.
    It does have a new type of injector though and I am concerned about any issues with the injectors when using veggie oil.
    I would like to fit a start/shutdown tank, but I doubt that there is room under the vehicle to install one.
    I have still not taken possession of the vehicle, it is still at the Car Yard's mechanical / upholstery repairers.
    I will have photos on here soon (I hope!)

    Hey Tony. Following with interest. I’m also on the lookout for a Prado for my wife which I plan to run on bio. You mention the one you just acquired is a 3 litre with mechanical IP. Is that the 5L series engine? My understanding is the 1KZTE engine comes with electronic injection?, cheers. Tom

    While this is not a NEW vehicle *( I only ever purchased one NEW car in my life and that was when I was 18), I am taking my time with converting this one to run on Waste Vegetable oil as it is an unknown to me and I have no one who has done one to guide me.
    I plan to start with a 20% veggie oil blend with diesel and get to know the vehicle while I look at my options for adding a start / shutdown tank.
    If I cannot fit a start tank, then I will look at gradually increasing the proportion of oil in the blend, until I have issues with starting.
    My oil sometimes has a high proportion of high melting point oils, so a small heat exchanger will be installed prior to the fuel filter at some point in the conversion.
