Filled up 14.0 gallons last week and (mostly) drove the speed limit of 65 mph and upshifted through the gearbox according to the factory manual.

Got a total of 330 mi. out of the tank which got me 23.5 mpg.

Wow. That only nets you 13.5 mpg. Why such poor mpg?

I had my engine remanufactured a few years back with 226,xxx miles on the clock. Was sluggish and losing power. Iíve put on about 21k mi. since reinstalling the newly rebuilt engine. Runs VERY strong and smooth! Transmission was also pulled and fully inspected and put back together. I donít recall the specs on the truck(mpg) when I bought it new. I do still have the window sticker for it.

I looked at mpg at the Tacoma V6 with the DH4(?) engine. And it gets 23/25(I think) with 278 hp. I run a paltry(but with a lot of torque) 134 rated hp and a Magna Flow Cat Back exhaust.

Res has big tires, 33s I believe, SAS, automatic and a SBC. Probably a heavy right foot. Ha!

King Cab 4x4 on 35s, SAS, 5.3L Vortec V8 (hence the 26 gallon tank. LOL) and yes, a heavy foot. 285 rated HP 315 torque
But I digress. When it had the Z24i I only got 17. Your mileage is impressive for such an elderly truck.

I was hesitant on 35s but I remember now that it's Syn that had 37s!!





My old fart truck gets pretty good MPGs. ~18 at 70MPH on 31s. The 31s killed my MPGs and I'm sure the VG33 didn't help. I used to get 25MPG on a flat highway with the VG30i, 235/75/15s and long tubes.





Still looking for a blower if anyone has a like on one! I need blower, belt brackets/tensioners, upper and lower plenum, MAF and injectors. I feel the need to make Res's 315FTLBs with 2 less cylinders! I'm sure it'll be good for fuel economy too!!!

You do have a terrific looking truck! That’s for sure!

The work to be done will work itself out. Just pick at it, if you don’t have the time, energy or frame of mind. Commit to maybe one item to do that’s relatively small and might take only 20 - 30 mins. tops. If that can’t be done. Then erase any thought(s) of even doing anything until you are rested and are in the right frame of mind to tackle the work. Safety is the best course of action. Being prepared for the task at hand can and will prevent injuries.

[QUOTE=PorknBeans;544467]To update my prior posts about the power steering reservoir molded hose...

IT FITS PERFECTLY!!!

Part Number 80564 from a 1995 Nissan Pick Up 2WD. My truck is a 1997. For my year, make & model. The power steering hose I.D. is too big(maybe 1/2" or 5/8") from the ones(they made the same mistake twice) they ordered for me. My truck needed a 3/8" I.D. for the correct sizing to fit over the reservoir and metal pipe tubing.

I removed the old rubber molded hose and installed the new hose. PERFECT FIT! Took about an hour to remove/replace. The two wire clamps are a pain in the a$$ to remove.

Hope this helps someone down the line.[QUOTE]


so, i took some inspiration from Ol' Beansie today and went to troubleshoot a slow power steering hose leak, it was on the low pressure side.

i checked my clamps and the one at the motor was loose enough to twist the hose, hose at reservoir was tight.

used a stubby phillips because of the angle and it took 3 full turns to snug the OEM clamp back up, no more leaks after the test drive!

Nice work!

I tightened all of my clamps and it was still leaking. Slow leak for sure. I noticed the hose was stiff and swollen while inspecting it still installed. I also could twist the hose easily where it attached to the metal tubing.The swelling and stiffness of the hose itself. Did not allow the clamp to be tightened any further. It’s been almost 7 days since the hose was changed out and it seems to be holding up. I will drain all of the power steering fluid and replace it with fresh oil in the coming days.
