new guy

Im new to the forum and wanted to introduce myself. My name is hunter and I live in mobile al. My daily driver is a 1990 Toyota 4wd pickup 22re, 5 speed, 4.11 gear, 31x10.50-15 tires on aluminum wheels. Figured I could learn something from you guys on how to maximize fuel efficiency and make a dollar go farther.

Welcome to the foum. My last fill in my 1997 Ranger was just under 10 cents a mile.

No bed cover, I use the truck as a truck too much to have one. I would constantly be taking it off and puting it back on.

A tonneau is a good option to enhance aerodynamics while running empty. My grandpa has a soft one in his 'Yota.

The little vinyl one that rolls up out of the way would be a good idea. I looked at the scangauge but I don't have obd2. How does the other deal work that is similar to it?

This is just a major change for me. These tiny tires and a low riding truck just feels all wrong lol All of my toyotas are at minimum on 33" tires and 12" wide wheels fuel mileage being no concern.

I'm not really into electronics so much, there are some folks here who can help you more effectively about that. I'm not sure if those vacuum gauges could work for you also...
