      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.

                      It's a common problem with both Petrol and Diesel models.

                        Did over 10K km with the Rescue Tape one. Pro tip, there is one Slikaflex that is resistant to petrol.

                          I just noticed I was loosing fuel. It may explain my poor fuel economy recently.

                          I would put up a pic, but the new extortion on Photobucket prevents me.

                          I've ordered a pipe on Amayama for $46. Toyota wanted $100

                            Just ordered mine from Amayama - US$40 delivered to Czech Republic. I started smelling diesel about 4 months ago, finally did some research here on the forum and... well, thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
