    When I rebuilt the calipers on my previous Tacoma, I had one piston seized in each, and ended up having to use an air hammer to get them moving. Those pistons ended up taking an express trip to the scrap bin, and a couple shiny new ones took their place after the bore in the casting was cleaned of corrosion. I doubt they ever would have come out without the good old air hammer.

    Good to hear that your mileage is restored, and you can check this off as a success.

    Welcome from Northeast Connecticut. Try fuel system cleaner. I put B12 fuel system cleaner at 30K service and my fuel mileage increased by .9 mpg average

    Winter blend gets less, I see that in my old Silverado (got only 14 supposed to be 16mpg City) and now the tundra. I'm getting only 11- 12mpg in City
