what ever you mean by gobs of oil... my guess is cold starts with short run times. 1 contributing to your "gas problem" and 2. causes condensation of water in the oil and it likes to milk the valve cover and oil cap, or it's just blow by because of high mileage.

The best my stock 22RE powered 5spd 4Runner has ever gotten was 22Mpg. My stock 89 22RE 5spd P'up gets 14Mpg, don"t know what the problem is same motor trans and gearing and the 4Runner has to weigh a few hundred lbs more. If you are getting anywhere close to 30 don't complain.

I had an '89 XtraCab 22RE/5spd with 31x11.50s that got @ 23-25 hwy easily. My '91 22RE/5spd 4Runner got @ 18 hwy on a good day. A 2WD 22RE 5 spd. should get 30 no problem I would think.
