Hey guys,

I googled it but couldn't figure it out, i suck at math

If google and my math are correct you are going 181.5 miles on 18.49 gallons of fuel yielding 9.81mpg.

That doesn't sound typical.

Your math is wrong,

400 km = 248.5 miles, 70 liters = 18.5 US gals = 13.4 MPG.

Still fairly crappy mileage though.

400 km = 248 miles (approx)
70 liters = 18.49 gallons

You're yielding approx 13.4 mpg

Try to keep the tach 2000 and below, this is the right foot mod.

Spark plugs, air filter, fuel filter and clean out the throttle body.

I would start with these.

You sure you are using 70l though? I never put 70l in, even after the light comes on

It won't do much for your MPG, but this little tool is great for doing unit conversions (like the ones required here). Highly recommended.

x2. I've never used/added the entire 18.5gal capacity to my truck either. The most I've ever added is about 17.5gal (66.2l)

Tire pressure(40 psi), Amsoil 0w-30, Amsoil severe gear 75w-90 in trans and diff. NGK plugs and Amsoil PI gas treatment or Seafoam. Amsoil air filter and easy on the throttle(you will know if your doing it right if you get flipped off). I get 30mpg @55mph and 24 overall.

This stuff is for my 2003 Double Cab V6 ?

Its a 3.4, not a V4

Would it make a difference ?

I am sorry for being an idiot, i never owned a truck before

Also are there any DIY that i can do ? i know i can do the seafoam thing, i did it with a 00 Accord..

And there are DIYs all over the place on here, just do some searching. And 13mpg is terrible for a I4.

Might think about doing the fuel filter too. You don't have any CEL do you?
