Old guy from the sticks

I have 93 Toyota 4 wheel drive single cab pickup. It gets fair mileage, It costs me 50 dollars a week just to go to town and back 3 times. So I'm here looking for some tips. I'm 76 and been a machinist, welder, and all around Mechanic for 65 years. I've raised my kids and built my house and now I'm just playin around for all the days I have left. You may learn more as time goes by. they call me Mac

Does your vehicle have oversized tires? I know a lot of the guys around my area with trucks the way you describe have 33's or better on them. That is a killer for gas mileage.
