  2. Sudden Poor Mileage! HELP!!

    Mileage and Fuel Economy
    Hey there, I just bought a really 2004 Toyota Tundra Double cab limited. I've only had it for a few weeks but I've noticed it seems to be lacking a bit in power, leaking a little antifreeze though the only indicator is that the reservoir goes to empty without a drop/smell of antifreeze anywhere...

    Tundra
    I have a RCLB with a 6" rough country lift and 35" toyo mt's. I've always wanted the super agressive deep lip look of the low offset fuels, but I'm worried if I'll be even able to turn the steering wheel without rubbing. Can anyone reccomend any solution to the rubbing? I really like the 20x12...
  5. Oil Change Interval for FlexFuel Tundra That Doesn't Use FlexFuel

    Tundra
    The problem: information from Toyota makes it appear that all 2012 Flex Fuel Tundras require oil change at 5K miles (2.5K if Flex Fuel is used more than 50% of the time). Quoting from ToyotaCare brochure, "2012 Sequoia Flex Fuel and 2012 Tundra Flex Fuel (both with the 3UR-FBE engine type)...
  6. Fuel Gage Issue

    1Gen-Tundra
    Ok so I have a 2003 Tundra 4.7 access cab bone stock and have been having an issue with the fuel gauge for the past year or so. At about 35-45 miles into a fresh tank of gas the gauge will bounce all the way down past empty and generally just all over the place for about ten miles and then...
  7. Let air out of tires, got BETTER mileage! Huh?

    1Gen-Tundra
    I have a set of 245/75 Michelin LTX M/S tires that are rated up to 80 psi. I've been running them at 60 psi and getting 21 mpg on the highway, which I thought was pretty good. The other day I aired them down to 45 psi while doing some offroading, and on the drive home my mileage went UP to 25...

  10. What impact does towing have on fuel consumption?

    1Gen-Tundra
    I'm trying to gauge just how towing a travel trailer will impact my Tundra's fuel consumption. My 2002 Tundra has the 4.7 V8, Auto Trans and 4WD - I currently average 15MPG on a fairly flat highway. Can anyone tell me how many MPGs I should expect to lose when I tow a: 1) 2000lb travel...
  11. Anyone noticing differences in performance versus gasoline brands?

    1Gen-Tundra
    I was wondering if others with the 1st gen Tundra with the 4.7L were noticing performance differences when using different brand gasolines? After getting a tankful of water during a fill up and consequently repairing nearly everything to do with fuel delivery to the engine, I have stuck to one...
