Didn't see a thread on this, and my L400 manual is pretty extensive, so thought I would post this here for reference in case anyone else needs.

Engine oil: 5W30 (for cases between -30C and +40C) or 10W30 (-20C to 40C+). 4.5L for 3000cc gasoline, 8.3L for diesel.
Auto transmission oil: 9.3L ATF SPII-M (Mitsubishi genuine oil recommended)
Transfer case oil: 2.5L of SAE75W/85W GL-4 gear oil.
Differential oil, front: 0.9L, if operating <10C then SAE80W, if >10C then SAE90. Mitsubishi Superhypoid gear oil GL-5.
Differential oil, rear: 1.6L-2.6L (depending on short vs long body), if operating <10C then SAE80W, if >10C then SAE90. Mitsubishi Superhypoid gear oil GL-5 (same as front oil).
Washer fluid: 2.3L front, 1.2L rear.
Power steering fluid: 1L Mitsubishi ATF II (please do NOT use ATF SPII M).
Coolant: both 2.8L diesel and 3L gasoline, 11L.

Battery: 80D26R for 3000cc wagon, 95D31R for non-cold climate package diesel, 2x80D26R for cold climate package diesel.

Spark plugs: NGK PFR6J-11 or Denso PK20PR-P11

Long section on lamps (basically H1 for high beams, H7 for low beams, then a long mix of 21W/5W for outside lighting and a mix of smaller lamps for interior lighting).

Not sure if this is useful to anyone, but hey, better than sitting on the info.

There is also the vehicle maintenance information label, which is stuck to an air intake duct under the bonnet, to refer to too.
