i get 375-400 km's to a tank...but because of stock gears and 35's its a litle more than that






but my tanks 127 liters..i worked it out...when gas is a buck a liter...i get about 5km's to the dollar...

so 100km's = 20 bucks...

so..kelowna and back = 850

so 165 bucks...

catch my drift? Dont complain about fuel milage:D

i gots a yota with the 22R and 33's and i get about 350-400 K on a 60 L tank. nezzy has a yota with the 3.0 L (2wd, stock) and i think the best he did on one tank was almost 550 K

witht eh 3.0L you should get between 400-450kms per tank. Probably closer to 400 since you have the auto.

with my old 89 4runner 3.0L 5spd on 33s & stock gears i got 425-450 per tank (corrected for tire size)


You probably know, but the gauge goes waaaay below emtpy. Tank holds 65L+ so if you not adding at least 60L its not empty yet.

Well I definately don't get anything close to that, I have 31", Auto, and If I'm lucky, i'll get 320 kms per tank... So I'm guessing there is something wrong some where...

I have 93 3.0L 5 speed 4:56 gears and 33's

I was getting barely between 300-350 to a tank and i changed my O2 sensor and now im getting well over 400kms. its more hilly than the coast but probably a lot less stop and go traffic.

I still love my 3.0L[36]

Good tune up will help a lot:

air filter
plugs (don't get platinum for the 3.0L)
wires (maybe if they're worn -- rev the engine at night and check for sparks)
cap
rotor
O2 sensor (This makes a huge difference. Get a generic one and splice the wires together -- it about 1/2 the cost of the proper toy one and the only difference is the plug)
thermostat

I went from a little under 400kms to about 450 after a tune up and mine wasn't that bad to start with.

yah mike......... i still think about it.... but i got a screamin deal on my runner.:p

who ever you are in aldy..... you should stop by for a beer one day if your getting that kind of shitty mileage mabey it's time for some plug's and cap/rotor.

i can turn a wrench or pass one if you need a hand lemme know.[41]

I know it's not a toy, but I get aboy 400k on a tank in our jeeps, which is not very good. I guess if I wanted good gas milage I would drive a import car.

it might not be a lemon, just might need a 02 sensor just ave to get it tested!!

your not alone on the shitty gas milage. I got a 3.SLO in my 4Runner as well and I am lucky to see 250km/tank (A fill is about 60L) and I am currently running 410 gears on 33" tires. Oh and i got a 5 speed. But the motor runs great, well as good as a 3.SLO can get.

Needless to say I have plans to put in the newer 3.4L Toy V6. Way more power, and they get AWSOME gas milage.
