Hello, I know the FJ is new or redesigned for 2007, I'm wondering if Toyota will respond with working on better MPG for future models, I'm very interested in looking into a cruiser. I own a 2006 Chevy Silverado 4x4 extra cab with the small V8 and get the same millage that I've read the FJ is getting. My mother who's always been a diehard chevy fan bought a 2000 Camry and says she wouldn't but anything but a Toyota again. So I'm more than willing to trade if the mileage would be better, I've liked all I've read about this SUV. Thanks for any insight that can be given.

I've read that the fuel suggested is premium, is this the mandatory grade and can the warranty be voided if a problem develops because or regular.

Just got back from a 5000 mile trip to the coast of Maine.
I got mpg lowest was 18.3 highest was 21.3 all on regular gas. I drive 75 to 80 on the interstates so I was pleased with the mpg.

I have owned my FJ auto. for 3months and have maintained 19.5 miles per gallon. This is city driving in Denver Colorado. Stop and go. Maybe averaging 150 miles a day. I have 9800 miles on it. This milage is also with the A/C on almost continuous. I recently went on a road trip of about 2800 miles thru Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota. Averaging 70 miles per hour with the A/C on always. 19 miles per gallon!!!I am confussed on the Premium gas deal. My dealer said that at high altitude regular gas is fine, at sea level I should be using premium.

No - Find Toyota Bulletin PP06-VG6027 issued 3-24/06 - your dealer will have a copy. It says "However, regular unleaded fuel with a minimum octane rating is acceptable." It adds that the HP rating might be reduced with the use of non-premium fuel.
I'm getting 18.7 MPG on regular.
