              • Hi everyone,
                Just bought a 08 120 D4D and I'm having trouble understanding ( my first 4x4 and my first diesel)
                I tried to run the tank down to see when the warning light would come but I panicked and filled it up, it was showing almost empty but it only took 117 litres for a total of 818km , all the mileage was around town.....can someone please tell me....the gauge was almost on empty no warning light was showing and it only took 117 lt does that mean that I still had 63 Lt to go? is that normal or should I get the tank or the sender checked? I'll be doing the Big Lap from July and it is very important that I understand how the Prado Diesel dual tank works, any advice or comments would be greatly appreciated.
                Cheers
