Hallo Werner,Hi voodoobrew
I´ve loaded it down.
so far I had it in bits and pieces, now this is a cpl. version.
But this manual is funny to use, it has no index and no structure.
to find something won´t be easy.
your suggestion to buy parts in Germany.....I am sure they are a bit heavely priced. Thats why I am checking to buy several things from the US.
have read your articles, you are in north-germany now.
still shocked with our petrol-prices???
my FJ is converted to run on LPG-Gas which makes driving cheaper than a Prado-diesel.
thanks for your help
Hi Werner,Hi Exiled Woman
I believe you live somewhere far north near Hamburg.
some say it´s a nice City but North Germans are in line with the weather, a bit colder. But they are also more liberal than the friendly but conservative South. May be North Germans are pissed by the weather.
I´ve never been up to the North, nothing much of interesting things to me.
but I have seen more from the states than from Germany, in fact, I have been almost everywhere in the US and Canada.
How i converted my FJ? you take it to one of the many LPG-Converter and after 3 days you get a real Gas car back, with a 2nd tank underneath. 60 miles cost me now about 17 $, which is very acceptable for a SUV. Meanwhile there are about 3800 LPG Gas-Stations in Germany. 1 Liter is about 0,70 Euro-cent.
the FJ drinks about 10% more on LPG. Since there are more big cars in Northern Germany, there are more LPG-Converters up there. Hence the price for converting is cheaper in the North - about 2500 for a V6.
nevertheless, I hope you enjoy your stay and it´s far better than Baghdad.
