    12-14. Once you start modding it, 10. It is not an economy car. In fact, my FJ60 which is larger, heavier and uses the same basic parts, gets much better mileage than my FJ40. It's just the way of the world.

    You will have someone in Colorado say they get 17-20. They are lying.

    You got something against Colorado? They use smaller jets in their carbs because of the elevation, so of course they're gonna get better mileage, right?:doh:

    Those high elevation jets do make it run leaner, if with a bit less power, and, yes, 17 mpg is by no means out of the question, particulary if one is desmogged. :cool:
