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.
