UPDATE: Well I finally got to "E" and had about 200 miles on the odometer. I reset the ECU went to fill the tank up and it took exactly 11 gallons. Still it wouldn't fill past 1/8 of a tank past full. WTH?

Yeah that's not right. The fuel level unit is def malfunctioning. Is the truck still under warranty.

Yeah it only has 7K miles on it. I'm planing on taking it to the local service center as soon as they can get me in (early next week).

So.. 200/11... 19 plus mpg...

How are you figuring this? You arent using the gauge at all are you? The gauge is not for measuring mpg at all.

Sorry if im being insulting... But I dont see 10 mpg. Maybe I missed a post... Just a bad gauge right?

Sounds like your gas mileage is just fine, but your fuel tank level sending unit is whacked.

I don't recall ever having a fuel gauge that was entirely accurate. My Taco goes 60 mi and the needle is just at the bottom of the "full" mark, then it drops to the 1/4 mark in the next 100 mi. and takes forever to get from there to "E"... WTF. The only to know your mpg is to calc miles driven/gallons used.

You are calculating it based on the odometer and not the fuel gauge. Not to be insulting, but I've known people that think the fuel gauge tells them how much gas is in their car. It doesn't.
