Ok heres the problem, when I bought the truck with 52000 km on it I was getting about 550km to a tank well now with 113000 on the truck I am getting 430km per tank. The wires are good and the plugs were new just before the last tank. My father's truck is a 2004 and he is getting about 800km to a tank. As for my brother who drives it like a race car well he gets around 550km per tank still, on his 2004 with 135000km on it. Can anyone fix this problem for me or at least let me know how to fix it. PLEASE

Welcome aboard Iceracer61 - we're glad you found us! You might want to look at the PCV valve and throttle body... replace and clean respectively.

When you get a chance, please exchange your email address with your actual location (on the location block of your profile page). Thanks!

Like MrH said, replace that PCV valve and clean the TB.
