I Be new around here

Back In September...or October, not sure. I became the pround owner of a 1991 Toyota Tercel DX 5spd

It need both front axles replaced and the air filter and plugs were CRAP, so as of now all that has been fixed and I'm hoping to be hitting around 40mpg with my current tank. With my previous tank I drove like a fool and got a little over 20mpg, I sure am happy gas is only $1.57/gallon

On another note, the previous owner treated Him(White Wallace) like crap, and thus I have quite a bit of work I would like to do to Him to make Him a little more handsome.

Welcome to the forum. From 20 mpg, your improvements will feel particularly satisfying.

Nice to have another Tercel around here. Depending on the weather, you should be able to hit 40 depending on your driving habits. In the summer, I was able to hit 40 a few times in my '93, but cold weather is taking its' toll now.

Is your DX a 2 door, or 4 door?
