    Interesting. Those appear to be Prado 120 shocks, Koni PN 88-1712, 2.5" dia. They cost about $700 a pair.

    Like so much of that embarrassment, the real Top Gear did it first, and better.

    This was surprising to me as well. They mentioned how they were running bio-fuel and being as I live in Colorado I've done research in the past and bio-fuel doesn't like the cold temps of CO so I'm not sure how barrels left in the middle of nowhere near the south pole fared. The 4.0L is also not a diesel engine so ??

    Maybe the engine was modified for a high ethanol blend.

    Gasoline works just fine in Antarctic temperatures. Diesel gels more easily, so the Arctic Hilux was modified to run Jet-A.

    BTW, due to transport costs, the fuel in Antarctica costs about $10k a drum :eek:

    Im curious if they were using an additive (like prist) for aviation fuels to prevent gelling and icing.

    Probably not. Basic pump gas has a very low freezing point already.
