Appreciate all the feedback.

I think I might wait awhile longer. I have 3k on the Tundra now and I've been told that around 10k I "might" see things improve a little. Time will tell I guess.

Thank you again for the feedback.

Mine is getting better, have around 12,000 on it now. Good mpg on the highway for long trips. I have a trd exhaust and k&n intake, I think that makes it a little worse.

If you are willing to give these things up then go for it. I miss my tundra but gas is better and my ride to work was a lot of lights and turns.
For better mileage you could. 1. Change the tranny, trans and engine oil to Amsoil. 2. Change your stock tires with more fuel efficient ones-according to Magic Mechanic out of Orland (AM radio personality and owner part in a garage). 3. Add CAI and headers. With all of this you might end up spending less than trading your and buying new. I could not sell mine because the dealers were giving $5000.00 in rebates.

I think the Tundra in a auto is 5speed, if they would have put a 6speed then that might have done a lot for us gas conscious folks.
tundra is a 6 speed auto
