Driving like an asshole my 5 lug got 28.3 on the last tank. That includes a lot of quick starts, 2nd and 3rd gear pulls, and frequent cruising at 80-90+.

Truck is all stock, I keep good maint on it (filters/oil/airfilters etc) but could really use some suggestions on improving the mileage.

Any of you-all have some good sugestions for improving mpg on these older pick-ups?

Thanks all!

That's weird my truck is the same as yours highway I get about 24mpg I leave my tailgate down
And city at least 20 mpg, my highway changes depending on the wind
Try putting your tailgate down when you drive you'll notice less drag

4x4 Mt, regular cab rated at 18city 20Highway. I have been getting an avg of 24 over the last month.

Some town, some highway. Soft foot and easy shifts around town and under 65 on highway seem to be key.

My numbers were worse when truck was new and we were on the winter gas.

Tailgate down = increased drag.

I get 22 city/rural and 25 highway. I run my tires about 2-3 lbs harder, and avoid idling and /letting it warm up in cold weather.

My mpg improved at around 10,000, coinsided with switch to summer gas but I think breakin has a lot to do with. I drive pretty soft but, it's a truck and needs to worked every now and then.

02 DblCab PreRunner 100,000miles, new plugs, removed the air intake snorkel and installed a K&N (just for kicks), mpg is 18 city; mostly short hops. 20-21 Highway at 65mph. I can't imagine much better and I'll see on my summer trips.

In comparison the mileage is only 1-2mpg city from my wife's 09 CRV. I think the Taco is doing pretty good considering the vehicle weight and truck qualities.

According to a test done on Mythbusters which include windtunnel and actual fuel consumption measurements, tailgate up produces less drag than down.
The best result in their testing was removal and using a net.

[QUOTE=ohdrj1all;3304784]I see lots of threads about 2.7L MPG and it seems most are getting considerably better than the window sticker ratings. When I buy (holding out to see what comes of the 2012s) I will be getting a 2.7L/5spd Access Cab 4x4. This combo is rated in 2011 at 17 city / 22 hwy.

So... is there anybody out there that is actually *only* getting 17 in town? Seems almost everyone that posts here gets over 20 in town.


i get a avergae of 18-19n mpg. wth bigger tires, rims, lift

1996 extended cab tacoma, and I get about 19... And that's with the occasional lead foot. Running 265/70/16's with flowmaster 40 dumped. I bet I could get 21 if I drove like a granny

I don't recall ever getting 17 mpg or worse. Last tank up was 24.1 mpg. Normally in the 22 to 23 range. I normally drive like my hair is on fire but this last fill up I've been taking it easy to see how good I can actually get being a responsible adult. Which sucks btw.
2009 4cyl 4x4 5spd manual. Use A/C a little when its real hot. Otherwise I have the windows open. Bed covered with a rigid folding cover.

My worse was 18, winter gas, cold, not broken in. Now getting consistant 24.

I think I could squees a few more mpg if I over inflated the tires but like the ride better at 30psi.

2007 - 4x4 / 5 speed / 4 cyl / Access Cab - all stock except for AFE Drop In and secondary filter removed. 2/3 hwy and 1/3 in town (on base)...consistently average 22 to 23 MPG, best 23.5 and worst 18.9 (during worst part of winter on Blizzak Studless winter tires). When I think about and try I get 23 MPG...when I don't concentrate on it I get 21.5 to 22 MPG. FWIW....
