for sure James, but before it gets another fill up that bloody tank is coming off

this is a P38 tank ....



I'm of the opinion that one of those little interlinked breather / balance pipes has let go ! ..... and I'm guessing it's the lower one ... or maybe even the intermediate one !!

too high a level and it's gonna leak

Going to run it down on fuel 'til the light comes on indicating 2 gallons or less and have it off, next dry day !!

I have got to do it .... for my own peace of mind .... a strong smell of fuel the other day tells me there was something amiss ..... and it ain't cheap to be losing either

I know I know.

I've deviated from Toyota many a time and they are the only ones on fleet that I don't touch and don't worry about giving hard work to.

I've got a jeep at the moment and it's giving me a head scratcher in the gearbox dept. Good job the hiluxs keep the show on the road.

Interesting comments about yer loverly old Land Rover product
For the past 12 years or so have owned 4 different Discovery s.
Disco 1 300 TDi - best apart from the rust
Disco 3 manual - gearbox repair was interesting!
Disc 3 HSE - too nice to tow an old mini digger
Disco 2 TD5 - current tow truck - great work horse
Opted for Discos because of a small percentage of 'private use'
They certainly get control of 3.5 tonnes on the back
Like all 'modern' Land Rovers, they have unique issues.
Knowing my way round a box of spanners, do me own repairs and maintenance.
And alway carry tools in the back!

My brothers Disco 2 had fuel tank pipes leaking on top of the tank.
Will follow yer fuel tank leak fix with interest....

Yep, common on the TD5 that is.

I've had a 300-TDI D1, sold it and then bought a TD5 D2, and then bought a D3 HSE TDV6. The TD5 is the "spare" vehicle for the family now.

well it would appear the general consensus on Land rover doesn't vary much ... from year to year .... a good workhorse provided you can speak 'spanners' fluently

Even though afflicted, sufferers can do so for years on end .... a cure is very hard to find. and may often be a case of 'frying pans and fires'
