    2014 Black DC TSS Off Road 4x4 5.7
    Transfer Flow tank, Pinstripe Suit
    Hi All,

    Just bought my 2014 TSS Off-Road DC 4x4 yesterday. LOVE the truck so far. Had to drive 4+ hours to get it, but it was a great drive back. The drive to the dealership sucked in a rented Hyundai. This is my first Tundra, but I have loved them since the 1st gen. I was looking for a truck to replace my 94 Bronco which is falling apart. I don't think I could have made a better choice. The truck I purchased is from Texas, so it has NO rust. It seems very well taken care of as well. Best of all, it's other half approved! She loves it, so I'm happy that everyone is happy. She hated the Bronco as it smells of mold and gasoline all the time.

    A little automotive history about me. I was primarily a time attack and auto-x guy. Main brand was Subaru, which I still love. My former pride and joy was a 2010 Legacy GT with AST race suspension and a bunch of other suspension mods. I decided to sell that to get a house and I bought the Bronco as a cheap interim vehicle. I'm also a big desert race guy, but I don't think I'll be putting long travel on this truck, as I need it to carry stuff and tow future toys. I will probably go with a chase/mid travel kit for the suspension upgrade.

    I do have a question to start off though, my Tundra came with the Transfer Flow 46 gallon tank, which is awesome, but I'm not sure that the fuel gauge or computer has been calibrated to account for the extra capacity. I didn't fill it up all the way the first time, but i put about 26 gallons in it with 1/4 tank left on the gauge. While driving, I noticed that the computer always said the same miles remaining for like 3-5 miles and would drop 1 remaining per 3-5 miles. Also, the fuel needle didn't move for a VERY long time. Is there a way to calibrate the computer and gauge for the extra capacity or is it something that I will need to get used to? As it sits right now, the trip computer is useless for range calculation.

    Thanks again, and I look forward to a very interesting time here.
