Actually no not really. If I was really worried about MPG I would be in a Civic not a brick.

There are times I wish I had my little Accura. I used to get 34mpg... Now I get 20mpg in the taco. Gas is expensive here in Cali. $3.80 at Arco is about the best I can find. It's near $4.00 at Shell / Cheveron / Texaco.

Exactly. I would have kept my 1.8L 1991 Corolla that got 550kms to a $40 tank of gas.

And if I really cared, I sure as shit wouldn't have lifted the truck, armoured it and put big knobby tires on it.


That said, I don't drive like a bat outta hell though. Nice and slow. Civics might be able to sling around curbs, but I can just drive right over them.

Must be nice, I have yet to get over 17mpg, and thats highway,
in town driving is about 15mpg
Now I admit, I am not a slow driver, but I am not hauling ass by any means either.
I am just hoping its due to the truck only having 3,000 miles on it, I really hope it gets better.

I really think MPG in these trucks deals with acceleration. Just ease up on the gas when the light turns green and it will get better

I came from an F-250 diesel. Awesome truck, I wouldn't have traded for the tacoma but I didn't tow enough to justify the added expense. Plus Diesel is ~4.25 around here

Even though I have the 6 spd so I'm not getting quite the milage of the autos..... Still loving my little truck that can!

BTW, I don't expect stellar MPG's from a truck because if that was my focus I would get a car. I do like an efficient vehicle that meets my needs and that is the Tacoma!

Um.....14mpg after the lift and tires + $3.59 gas = HELL NO

I'm going this weekend and getting an economy car for my daily commute I drive 170 miles round trip 5x a week.. For the payment + insurance + gas for the car.....I'll still save over $200 a month than gas alone for the Tacoma.

Gas is steadily going back up here in So Cal. Think I saw 3.93 this morning on my way to work. Thank god I commute on my bike and get 40mpg. I'm not worried about the mpg in my truck, I just couldn't afford to fill it up for a few months there while the wife was off work.
