After their new 200 was recently delivered, they were looking to get rid of their 100. I happen to coach their granddaughter in soccer and they knew I drove a Land Cruiser. They asked if I was interested in their 100 if it was offered with a "coach's discount." The deal was too good to pass up. So instead of getting an 80 or a 62, I ended up with another 100. Not really the same, but I already have a vehicle that's tough to climb in and out of. It's nice to slide right into the seat. Plus, 22 mpg's is awesome. I didn't even know that existed anymore.

Drove it up to RMNP and took advantage of the Every Kid in a Park program. 4th graders (or age equivalent), and their family and friends riding with them, get complimentary access to all national parks. Pretty sweet.

Anyway, it rides and drives like a Land Cruiser and we're psyched. 2003, 173k, Toyota and Toy Car Care maintained.

That's awesome Stan! I'm very jealous. I was looking for a decent stock 100 for a DD, but ended up with a (super boring yet practical) RX instead. Still doesn't keep me from checking CL every day for a 100

Tank number two and I'm still at 21.2 mpg. To be fair, it's only been driven on the highway and about 10 miles of dirt exploring around Corona Pass.

Mine can show mileage that high for the first third of a tank if all hwy, but it doesn't last. I usually land around 17 for most tanks these days by the time I get down to 50 miles left in the range.
