    I don't know. What I do know is the engine runs like new, does not use oil.

    I change the oil every 8-10k miles. Sometimes every 12k miles. I use Mobil 1 m1-209 oversize filters for these extended runs between changes. If I use Toyota OEM filters I change them halfway between changes at about 5k miles.

    I really don't know another vehicle with the killer reputation that the Toyota pick-up truck has. Come on, the term 'that thing will run forever' doesn't get used on very many other vehicles.
    I am on my 3rd Tacoma, and I've pulled 53,000 miles in my first year, and it runs like a Swiss watch. I wouldn't trade it in for nothin' (unless they come out with a Tacoma hybrid like they have been talking about.....)

    OP---this is awesome! I bought my '08 with 88k on it and now just turned 103k. Long way to go to catch you but I plan on running mine until retirement (15-19 years). Good to know that I just need to do the maintenance and take care of it. Foolishly, I traded my 4runner with 189k bc I was nervous about the mileage:rolleyes: If only I had known about this site then! Thanks for the inspiration and keep bringing the updates!

    I do not have the 20 MPH vibe.

    250,000 miles(400,000 km's) is an awesome milestone. It's threads like this that make me glad that I got a Toyota.
