There is an eco mode for you. I see the drive modes really working for people like yourself. Being a storm chaser that puts in a lot of miles. Drive the distance in eco mode. When it comes time to chase or flee, put it in sport mode.I think the days of the big, gas guzzling SUV's like the 4Runner are nearing the end of the line -- at least for daily drivers. With low gasoline prices in serious jeopardy right now, I'm antagonizing over canceling the BS deal and see if they produce a hybrid BS in the next 1-2 years.
