Hi all, i just bought a '89 Power Ram 100 with the tbi injected 318. It has the 727 tranny (36RH), NP241 Transfer case, full tow package, and the 114L gas tank. I just filled it a couple days ago and have driven about 260kms and have gone through 3/4 of a tank... Is this normal? I've checked the computer for codes and all it comes up with is 34 and 37. I'm not worried about 34 as i dont have cruise control, but i'm not sure what "Part throttle lock/unlock solenoid driver circuit" supposed to mean. Does it have to do with the torque converter lockup feature?

If this is normal, is there anything i can do to improve on it? I've driven it like the bed has been full of eggs since i filled it and i've heard of guys with the 318 and 90L tank getting between 500 and 600kms a tank...
