    Mileage is taking a hit lately. Some info on my truck: 2010 TRD OR 4.0 MT 3" lift 285's on Stocks. My tires are Load range C so they arn't super heavy. My driving is mostly Hwy, 45 Mph+. My Milage was at an avg 17-19 MPG now its at best (3 tanks) 15.3 MPG. The truck has just over 35k miles and is mostly used on weekends. :confused:

    You should do the spark plug change every 30k. These trucks have regular old copper spark plugs so you're definitely due. There's a great write up on here somewhere that shows step by step how to do it. Takes about an hour if your familiar with mechanical repairs.

    Thats what I was thinking. I work @ NAPA so I was looking at the factory plugs and was disapointed when I saw the copper plugs.
