Re: Damn dealership

Leasing is a horrible idea, especially for an FJ that is bound to get modded.

Unless its a tax write off or work subsidized vehicle, never lease IMO. It's a very expensive rental!

Re: Damn dealership

Got my army green fj couple days ago, love the vehicle. I order the pure fjcruiser sliders. I want the passenger armrest but not for 90 bucks!!.

Gas mileage is horrible as of right now, im getting 210 to a full tank.
Im sure dealer gave me regular, i will try premium.
Does the trd exhaust n intake improve power? Only negative about is it dosent have any decent take off. I know its not meant to go fast but its weak in that aspect.

Does a aftermarket front bumper (allpro, demello) would void warranty?
I bought extended 7/100k

Re: Damn dealership

Congrats on the new FJ! The only comment I can really speak to is gas mileage. I have roughly 800 miles on my FJ now and I have averaged 21.46 mpg over my last 3 fill ups, all of which were with regular (85 octane here). 90% of my driving is city, with a camping trip to the mountains and light off roading in there. I researched the premium vs regular debate extensively, and my conclusion was that premium does nothing more than cost you more money in these. I also feel like my personal results confirm it.

I have the 6MT which is rated 15 city 19 highway and I'm getting 21.46 city with regular. I can't imagine premium would increase that. You gotta remember though, this is a big truck, so stomping on the gas at stop lights is going to kill your mpg. Fuel economy is 80% driving style.

Stock* 2013 Iceberg 6MT FJ Cruiser
*Aftermarket parts may include, but are not limited to: Ironman Foam Cell Pro Full Suspension, Demello Aluminum Rally Bumper, Engo E9000S Winch, BFG A/T KO2 34X10.5R17, Demello Tube Sliders, RCI Skids, RCI Lower Link Armor, URD Short Throw Shifter, Hella Supertones, Lifetime LED 70W Headlights, Lifetime LED 42W Roof Lights.

Re: Damn dealership

Yeah, on the MPG front I was around 19 MPG combined until I went to the 285 Duratracs. I'm consistently in the 16s now.
