2.7L 4x4 City MPG Rating

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.

Anyway, would be interested to know. Thanks!

I'm getting right around 17 right now. I drive really short distances in the city, with lots of stop and goes and waiting at lights. Then again I live in downtown Seattle and commute to the other side of downtown for work and don't always ride my bike or take the bus...

A lot of us that are getting 26+ MPG'S have the 2.7L 4x2 , 4x4 will decrease your MPG's.

I am getting a little over 22mpg combined city/hwy with the same combo you are considering.
Keep in mind that stop and go is terrible on anything but a hybrid. We just don't want to go there.

16.5 here, averaged across everything city, hwy, off road...

Most who post up like getting good mpgs and drive to maximize it.

I should note that I'm lifted with oversize fires. (But my mpg numbers are corrected for their increased circumference.)

All Terrain/off road tires are going to decrease gas mileage as well. I should figure mine out some time.

My 5 lug is rated at 21/26. Even in the dead of winter with short trips (no longer than 8 miles one way) and zero highway miles, I still have never had a single tank below 24 MPG. It's very easy to beat the EPA ratings.

My 4X4 Access cab gets 19-22 in the city, depending on how I drive. Average is prolly around 21. Highway isn't that much better tho.. might get 25 downhill with a tail wind.

I hear you guapo. Not much better mileage on the highway. My '03 is rated 18/21. I think it'd be nice if the truck had a 6 speed in it. I'm tachin' about 2500 at 65mph.

I've got a 2007 Access Cab 4x4 with 265/75's. Around the city I usually get around 19-20. Highway is 22-23. That's with me driving it pretty 'mpg-conscious'.

My last tank was 20.5 with a 50/50 mix of highway/city.

Best MPG I've seen was 100% highway with a tailwind driving across TN; got like 26.8. That was with my 245/70's though.

Suggestions on improving MPG??

ohdrj1all re: Only 17mpg?,

I have a 98 Tacoma x-cab, 2.7L, 5spd, 4x4 and I am only getting 17mpg +/- - you'll probably have better results with newer generation. I drive a mix of about 60/40 City/highway. 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!
Jeff - Seattle

22.5mpg (US) on the 1800-ish miles I've put on this month. All two lane roads, max 60mph, and quite a bit of slow speed stuff in the woods (1st-2nd gear). Load range E tires. 2.7l AC 5 speed.

A big part of getting good fuel mileage has to do with the part that connects the seat to the steering wheel...
