    Parked the taco at our ranch just over a year ago, needed ball joints on Driver side and I had this old F-350 diesel I was just wanting to drive. Well paying over 100.00 on each fill up, finally got me. So I went up last week end pulled the yota out of the weeds, replaced ball joints,tie rods etc, cleaned out field mice nests and rattle snake skin sheds and looked things over for the 100 mile trip home. Last night the f350 was dropped off for ranch duty and the yota hit pavement for the first time in over a year! Ran a little rough, got to a gas station filled with super unl and hit the interstate first 5 miles or so had a few miss here and there, then she finally lined out and running smooth...old truck runs smooth. Sure missed the taco, glad to have it back on the road now....amazing difference in fuel guage movement compared to the F350....LOL
