COMPRESSION FOR THIS MOTOR

1997 Toyota Rav4

Engine Mechanical problem
1997 Toyota Rav4 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 111505 miles

I have had this vehicle checked by 3 mechanics and all come up with a different compression reading. What should it be? We had trouble with it starting for 3 days and suddenly it started. I'm thinking fuel.
