    Hi,

    Just bought the 06 Toy........ getting 19 MPG religiously in the city and 25 on the hwy. Happy.....not excited but happy!

    Man.......teaching out of this truck then going to my Versa....... who cares that I get 28 mpg in my car...... the truck is like a "cadilac" for comfort and "fun" factor!

    I think I might add "Mud Bogging" to the course........ lol

    :p

    Click around. They offer many different programs. I believe some provide the vehicle. Far from LA, but right in Pittsburgh's backyard:D

    I changed to Synthetic oil which made no difference in mileage but the air cleaner was switch to K&N and that made a difference. I was cleaning it the other day and ran a tank of fuel through with the stock filter and mileage dropped 2 mpg and it immediately went back up when I put my K & N back in.
