If my topper isn't on after I go through the next tank and the mpgs are above 23 again... I might seriously consider trying to store the topper in my garage unless I need it.
If you wouldn't mind... what tires are you running? And around what revs are you shifting at? My tanks tend to be 18-20. Sometimes a little better on long trips. Or do you have a 4banger?

People around here aren't too bright. Lol. I can't count how many people get stuck there because they are alone and end up having to leave the truck.

I even have told people explicitly, "DO NOT go in that mud with that truck, you WILL get stuck." They usually say something like, "this is a CHEBY i can make it," and run through it, get stuck then ask me if I can pull them out.

And my personal rule is that I only pull out people I know. If I pulled out everyone that asked me I would be pulling out 10 people a week during the rainy season.

Damn. I don't even have sliders, and I think we have the same shell. My tires are even a little smaller at 265/70 (I measured them the other day at ~30").

Is most of your driving 55mph? Best tank I've gotten was 22 with mostly 55 highway.

Driving like a grandma doesn't really seem to make a difference in my mpg. When I first got the truck I did a tank where drove like a dickbag and rev'd to 3K every time. Then a tank where I shifted a hair over 2k and drove slow. It was within a half a gallon. Which is probably just variance in the shutoff with different pumps.

It seems to me my mpg is more the number of cold starts / short trips. Like when I get too lazy to walk the 8 blocks to the climbing gym after work

Half or so of my commute Mon-Fri is 45 or 50 mph. Total commute one-way is 13 miles.

That's about to change when my daughter goes to a new school and it's going to be a 3.5 mile one-way trip. I expect to see a big drop in mpg.

But truly I've noticed that it doesn't matter if I'm going up mountain passes in 4WD on snowy roads in 4th or 3rd gear, 4-wheeling for two days, driving mostly city, all highway, etc... my mpgs are usually in the 21-23.5 range.

I'm curious to see what the shorter/cold engine commute does to my economy.

Thanks for the info. Yeah I haven't noticed much difference in MPG in 4wd either. I sort of gave up trying to improve mpg since my driving habits weren't really changing anything. I'd be curious to know what your mpg ends up being the addition of the short trip. And regardless, jealous of what you're getting!

I cleaned my MAF, throttle body, IACV, changed all my spark plugs and new spark plug wires all in one shot. Noticed no difference in mpg at all.

Changed my fuel filter... no difference either.

Toyota rated our trucks at 16-21 tops but i get 17-18 since im 90% city driving and refuse to drive like an old man holding up traffic.

When i read people saying they get 22+ mpg I laugh cause not even when i was stock doing 60-65 mph with and without cruise control did i ever get even close to 20.. LOL

Especially since im a 5 speed and autos get worse mileage and a few have said they get 4cyl mileage haha

No Tacoma is the same from what I can tell. You can have the exact same trucks and one will get 17 and the other may get 20. They're just different. My 2.7 auto 96 Tacoma got 20-21 with 31x10.50x15's on steel wheels at best.

I'm with Madjik on this, don't get how everyone gets such poor mileage. I will say though that here in Colorado there is a 2-4mpg difference in winter, mainly due to ethanol, but I just noticed recently we're back to the good gas. So with that being said:

I do not drive like a great grandma with my V6 5-speed, and last tank, 100% city, 265/75/16 Load Range E BFG ATs, 2" lift, and sliders; I got 18.9 MPG. That is with the topper as well. When I try to get better mileage in town, I usually get about 21. Best I ever got (and repeated almost identically twice) was 26.2MPG driving between Steamboat and Fort Collins. Those who know that drive understand it is probably an average speed of about 50-55mph 2-lane highway with lots of curves and hills.

In fact, I'm in FC now, filled up in Steamboat, I'll report back with the millage I got when I fill up tomorrow or Sunday before heading back up.

thanks a lot man!

It the lighting that makes it look less dirty than it is. It would look much better if someone didn't throw a rock at my fender last year. (you can barely see the dent in the pictures). It was also sadly parked under a tree for over a year and the paint was abused even before then. I washed it a few times for my grandpa using a brush with bristles when I was real young. I didn't know better, and also didn't know it would be mine one day. Sorry for the short story.

When I wax it up though, it still looks pretty darn good for all of her 89,000 miles.
