i love driving my tacoma around but the gas prices is killing me. Long comute to work everyday. Lucky I have only a 4 banger 2.7 engine. Is there a better option to save gas? Does anyone know anythign about installing a diesel engine and what kind? I have a 99 taco. I saw a 86 taco, diesel, wondering if it is possible to get one of those engines and put it in my trcuk to save gas? Wondering wondering...

yup an nope, the 2L(84-88?) and jdm 2.4/2.8 td will bolt to a 22re(89-95?) using a 2L bellhousing .those 2.7 got good mileage I thought? ,my 2.4td gets 10L-100k=500k a tank

my milage was horrible running my 3.0 so i broke down and bought headers and did my exhaust completely with removable convertor and 40series flowcrapper and my milage/hp's has gone up from about 400km to 550 it has paid for itself and ive only had it in for 2weeks... but now that i put the 34s back on its gone down abit but still better than before... the angle of the pipe coming off the intake side was robbin' me of a few horses... and my cat was plugged 2 fuck so.. all and all im happy and only cost me alittle over 6bills to complete everything including driving to NWOR to pickup the headers.
