    Is 10-12 mpg on a 92 reasonable? Recently had sludge problem in front axle, do you think anything else would be wrong?

    There's a thread on FZJs, why not any interest on the FJ?

    4.88s are bit steep for 33s. That probably isn't helping you much in the mileage dept. But I bet it helps in off line acceleration. When did you get an 80?

    That mileage is pretty normal. I got 10-11 running 35s with stock gears. With the stock 31s. it would run 11-13. Once in awhile it would pop up to 14 if I was doing slow highway driving.
