    The pipe in this discussion is in front of the diff. Easy to see if you lay under the car. Just to the left of centreline. ( looking from rear).

    I checked my 10 year old one on the hoist yesterday. All good still. Not brittle or hard. No cracks.
    Thanks, I'll check it out. Hopefully the pipe will be obvious. As far as spill goes and the overflow, the I initial smell was at fill up and the obs of the moistness or the flow was not at full tank but later. I'll have a look.

    Was the moisture fuel? Or water?

    If water gets into the splash tray it runs down the pipe near rear passenger mudguard. Wh. Rain etc.

    I'm having the same issue with an 07 with 260k on the clock... Quoted $87 from local toyota. Wreckers all said they generally cut that pipe and that they wouldn't trust a second hand rubber hose anyway! Have temp fixed with rescue tape for now and just have to do 1000ks plus to drain the tanks as I dont have 180L of Jerry Cans available :-)

    No need to drain tanks to change this filler hose.
    Easy DIY job.
    Clean, dry then 2 clamps.

    Same Issue 2004 V6 Grande. Wife driving car to pick up son from school, parked it, left engine running with A/C and son noticed strong fuel smell when getting in car. they looked underneath and noticed fuel leaking above rear Diff. I was not close by so she called RAC, diagnosed split hose and towed home. Car had not been refilled for over a week butt he return from the engine must return to the rear tank as i am sure it had switched to front tank before leak.
    ***If you have friends out there that own any 90/120 Series i would strongly suggest they have it changed sooner rather than later stuck somewhere. Also could potentially catch fire if left leaking for long enough***

    Yep, found mine had a crack in the filler hose the other week. Only a problem when both tanks are full. It's one of those "I'll get to one day" jobs.

    Another "me too!" Here. Around 200,000km, sprung a leak. Bought a new pipe for about $40 from Amayama.com, took about 5 minutes to pop it in. Not a job you should put off considering how easy it is to fix!

    Same issue at 230,000 km on 2007 diesel 120. Easy to replace, cost $86 from Toyota in Brisbane. I asked if it was a common problem and was told they had sold 45 so far this year. Dont know if that was Toyota as a whole or just this dealer. Did it myself after being quoted $190 labour by another Toyota dealer.

    Has anyone had the filler pipe going to the subtank crack? It doesn't have the corrugations in it but I was checking under mine today and that hose looked hard too.
