    Why do diesel items such as oil and air filters cost so much more than their petrol counterparts? I know the oil filter is around 4x the size but even so...

    Air filter. No idea what your talking about. Same for diesel and petrols in the gen 3 and 4's anyway.
    Oil filter. It has to do a lot more work and filter finer. Some are dual filters.
    half full flow other half bybass low mircon.
    Reason then cost more is simple. They cost more to make.

      It's like when you add the word Baby or Motorbike to an item.
      Adding the word Diesel to something makes it sound more exclusive and special so it comes with a price tag to match

        It all depends on where you buy the filters.
        Genuine oil filter is about $50 and genuine fuel filter is about $65 if you buy from a Mitsubishi car dealer.
        I'm getting exactly the same genuine fuel filter for $19 and fleetguard oil filters for about $22 each from a Fuso truck dealer.....

          Different brand but I use Nippon Max filters and just had a filter pack. Air, fuel and oil arrive at my door for $70.
          I don't call that expensive.
          Genuine would be another story.

          Also my 2.8L diesel Hilux took a Z9 oil filter. Probably the cheapest oil filter you can buy.
