    Hello Everyone,
    i just joined the forum today and thought i should say hi. I am working in Oman for a while and bought myself this Desert Dune coloured , 1998, Limited spec (with lovely gold badges) Toyota 4Runner. She seems to have originated from Virginia, USA according to the windscreen sticker and appears to have just been out here in the sunshine for a couple of years! I bought her up North in Muscat and had a 950km trip back home in her as her first drive. She passed with flying colours and has been great fun over the last four months that i have owned her. She has not had any modifications apart from a new exhaust box welded in place of an original part, by the looks of it. This gives it a nice rumble sound so i am not complaining.There are 222k miles on the clock now, with me accounting for the last 4k of them. I am only getting around 17 mpg, so mighty pleased that fuel is the price it is here and not like in the UK. I get the engine check light on the dash most of the time and am guessing it is the O2 sensor from what i have read? I say this due to there being no apparent fault with the engine in its day to day running. However, any advice on its cause would be most welcome. I am hoping to get a bit of off roading done in her as this is a great place for that sort of thing. I will post more pics and info as i do more trips. The photo is me down at the coast in the Southern region of Oman. All the best to you all, Chris.
