    With the ownership of a Tacoma, I guess I'm entitled to create this thread right?


    Apart from being a newcomer to the TacomaWorld scene, and the car scene in
    general, no doubt my lack of experience from my adolescent mind will shine through here, so keep that in mind. 3Q_5l_xH1dZ50sLfzNWDHNDF88XTjdROU5Gyo4FA_14cf48a10eb3bd4c62ea712717e92e7acf47ffb8.png


    May 24, 2017, far out in the Boonies of Colorado, is where I laid eyes on my first vehicle and was given the keys. On the way back to Ohio, I knew I was in for a real treat with the eye-watering gas milage.

    31.6" tires and you're getting an average of 9mpg? Something must be wrong or you must enjoy boosting...

    I'm supercharged and had the same tires as you. And at the time, with my auto trans, my lowest recorded mpg was 14. Granted, I don't have the smaller pulley or 7th injector but damn, something seems off with 9mpg. What's your a/f ratio looking like on that wideband? Were you driving like 105mph across i70 to Ohio the whole time? :rofl:

    I wish I could hit 105, it pretty much fights me past 90 lmao. I have really no idea of knowing what my a/f ratio is right now, I imagine its running super-rich, for whatever reason.

    Ah! I read your future plans as mods you currently have. I was kidding about the 105 but even 80 will tank mpg in our trucks lol I'm betting you'll see higher numbers around town and country roads. I see Ohio, I grew up just south of Dayton lol
