Cool Gas Mileage

I'm brand new to this web site and I just purchased an 07 Tacoma crew cab 4.0 6 cylinder long bed and was just curious about the kind of mileage anybody is getting on theirs. I'm getting around 17 to 18 mpg. with about 500 miles on the truck.

Check out the thread previously quoted by 007Tacoma...
Sounds like I have the same truck (I have the prerunner [2wd]) and we have been getting 18.5 mpg.

I have run almost three tanks of gas through my new truck and got 17.4 mpg on the last tank......ALL city driving though. I have just over 800 miles on my 2007 4.0 double cab. I have not had it on the highway yet. Man, that puppy will hit 70 mph in a blink!

Just got 20 mpg dead even on our 4x4 Access cab 2.7 liter 4 cylinder.Mostly around town
Currently about 2000 miles on it.

My FJ Cruiser with the V6 6Speed manual tranny has been getting 16 so I am really happy with 20 mpg.

Still not sure why Toyota felt the need to make the FJ Cruiser full time AWD with the manual transmission. I am sure the mileage would be better if it was part time 4wd

I need to get mine out on the highway. I think I will take it to San Antonio this weekend. It needs a good long easy drive before its first oil change... We shall see how that goes.
