    Rain Visors,
    Ok guys, I got my taco 15 days ago, used. And on my last 4 fill ups, i have gotten 16.9, 16.4, 17.9 and today 18.49 MPG. Out of my '06 AC 4.0L 6-Speed. I attribute the slow increase to my getting used to driving my new rig. It's got 41K on the clock so it's broken in....at 45K miles I am going to do a huge maintence.

    • New Front Diff Fluid-Fully synthetic
    • New Rear Diff Fluid-Fully Synthetic
    • New Transfer case Fluid-Fully synthetic
    • New Oil-Already running Mobil1
    • New Tranny oil-Fully Synthetic
    • New Spark Plugs- gonna try these 24$ Pulstars
    • New Air Filter- Probablem AEM or K&N
    • Removal of Secondary Filter
    So I will get a a 4000 mile MPG test prior. I am also a very consistant driver, and drive the same routes day in and day out. It's maintence time anyway, so gonna go all out and see if all of these little things will make any difference at all....

    I also keep Tire pressure dead on, and keep minimal weight in the truck, so will see what happens...

    Ill keep it updated.
