Dollars to donuts it is condensate from the evaporator. In US (left hand drive) cars it shows up on the passenger side, this is a European model I'm guessing?

Likely the drain tube is clogged and unable to allow water in the condensate pan to drain. Another possibility is that the upper end of the tube is disconnected, or it has a hole in it somewhere.

Easiest way to deal with it is find the drain tube and carefully attempt to unclog it. You can take it to a garage and they will lift it and blow compressed air up the drain tube, which usually does the job.

Or you can crawl under with the car on ramps and see if you can find the lower end of the drain tube. It may have a drop of water from seepage past the clog.

Try googling your model and "clogged condensate drain" for videos

Discovered today that there is water leaking on the front driver side. Did some googling and it turns out it seems to be a regular problem with many Toyotas over the years.

The water is coming down from under the side panel, by the gas pedal. I poured a huge bucket of water on the windshield just to see and nothing came through. I'm guessing it's happening when i have the air conditioner on, which i did yesterday on our drive down from the city.

Car is only a little over a year old so i'm hoping the warranty will cover the repairs.

Sounds about as good as the Kubota RTV we use up at the ski hill. Probably has more power TBH.

Depends on how fast we go, but I usually plan on parity (1 mile, one gallon). I do use nautical miles if that makes it any better.

Don't go there if any of you fear being politically incorrect.  

 
I knew the fuel mileage would be bad.  I was just curious as to how bad. 

We own a Nissan Xterra.  It is a voracious pig.  At least it spends most of the time parked which is what I suspect will happen to the '41 Dodge Power Wagon.

It is only my opinion, but old vehicle hobbyists are not what comes to mind when I picture significant sources of carbon emissions and  small particulate matter.    Besides although the health of the planet concerns me, it takes second seat to my concern for safety.   Old vehicle enthusiasts tend to be cautious, respectful drivers. 

That said, with this old girl, you could turn some heads if you rev it right.  
   Totally bad ass for cruisin' the barrio.  

 
So sorry if I came off way too defensive there.
I tend to get very defensive when it come to things like my truck or for my sons too.
Yes the mileage won't be the best out there.
Like my truck also... but for what they are... it can depend on how you drive them.
That engine he has in his '41 is my old engine I build in '91. It has 140,000 miles on it. It's a little tired. And it wasn't built like you can build them today.
The one  I have in my truck now has a little more than 100 h.p. than the old one. AND it gets better mileage than the '91 version. All because of the newer tech that's available these days for older engines.
So for a little over than 600 h.p. in my truck now... my truck can achieve pretty much what the average 2019 truck can get for mileage. With almost twice as much horsepower.
And my truck is no lightweight.
Of course mileage may vary with how you drive it.
My truck is very fun to drive.

He's going for a exact replica olive drab green with military markings.
My wife and I got him a fiberglass replica 50 cal. machine gun for Christmas a few years ago.
He's already built a bed mount for it.
That will get some attention going down the road.

Heck, back in the day when I had air cooled Corvairs and my beloved 1973 VW Bus with the 1700 cc engine, I would run Kendall GT 20W50 racing oil.  Sometimes in the summer, I would run straight 50W.  The bus got real hot in the summer ... anyone remember vapor lock ?


 
With my Six Pack this is a common issue.
That's why I run a return line back to the tank... it stops that problem.
