    Yeah same engine. Just one of those things as far as I can tell. If you use premium you can also expect the same HP numbers the FJ is boasting. And if i'm not mistaken which I have been known to do, he doesn't have to run premium.

    For 2010 the engines in the Tacoma, FJ, and 4runner are the same. Says toyota. What year is your buddy's FJ?

    "Toyota unveiled the FJ Cruiser for the 2007 model year, cashing in on the retro theme played out on other crossovers and SUVs — but underpinning it with real truck toughness. Built on the 4Runner architecture, with a shortened floorpan, the FJ Cruiser's standard (and only) engine is the same 4.0-liter aluminum-block V-6 with variable valve timing that's offered in the 4Runner, Tundra, and Tacoma. Here it makes 239 horsepower and 278 lb-ft of torque. The engine's mated to either a five-speed automatic transmission (again shared with the 4Runner) or a six-speed manual transmission exclusive to the FJ."

    Incorrect. For 2010 the V6 engine in the FJ Cruiser and 4runner are the same. ...but different than the V6 in the Tacoma and Tundra. For 2010 Toyota added dual VVT-I to the 4.0 V6 in the FJ Cruiser and 4runner but not the Tacoma and Tundra.

    Same fuel for all though...regular unleaded.

    Right but the engines are the same. The FJ and 4Runners just have dual VVT-I. No physical change to the engine.
