Default gas mileage?

Any one have an idea why my 89 p/up with 22re & 5spd running 30" a/t's can get 5 mpg less than my 85 4runner w 235's. 85 got 22mpg with 31's about 60k ago now gets about 20. P'up gets 15/16 it seems to run great. Has more power w 30's or 31's than 4rnnr does w 235's. I would think dlx p'up has to way a few hundred lbs less than loaded 4rnnr. Recently tuned p'up plugs/wires/cap & rotor no change.

My '89 XtraCab with a 22RE/5 spd combo on 31x11.50 Yokohama Muddiggers in got around 24 mpg driving back and forth from Bay City to Holland. It had around 145k on it when I bought it ad 163k and a wrist pin rattle when I sold it. Wish I never got rid of it.

My '91 4Runner with a 22RE/5 spd. combo on BFG 31x10.50 ATs got @ 17-19 mpg around town. 21 on the highway IIRC. That thing had 207k when I bought it and @ 246k when I sold it. Thing purred llike a kitten still.

My '04 DoubleCab Taco 3.4/auto gets @ 20 highway and @ 17 city.
