Gas Mileage

Hey Guys!

I have a 2007 Tacoma 4x4 with the 2.7 motor in it and a 5 speed. It does not seem to get the gas mileage I use to. Are there somethings I can check to see if I can improve my mileage truck runs like a champ. It has 130k on it. I want to drive it till I can't anymore. Any suggestions I would appreciate. Thanks!

Do a full tune up.
-plugs and wires
-oil change
-belts
-make sure battery is good to go(water in battery, posts arr clean)
-pcv valve
-air filter
-fuel filter
-tranny and diff fluid change
-coolant flush
-change wheel bearing grease

Check anything that effects the health or your engine and anything mechanical that may impede the operation of your vehicle

Tune up

Ok new battery and belt a few weeks ago. Due for regular oil change next week. Going to replace plugs and such next week. How do I change PCV valve? Coolant I just drain and replace with new right? How about tranny and differential oil? This is a 2007 standard transmission and 4x4
