Hey guys. I just bought my Tacoma (2011 Access Cab SR5, 4 cyl 4x4)) a few weeks ago (brand new). I traded in my '02 Dakota for it, which had a V8. I went with the 4 cyl because it was in my price range and really, I don't need anything more. I was also curious as to what I would save in fuel.
I've checked my mpg 3 times, so far, and was surprised to see that I got 13, 13, and 12 mpg respectively. I only drive "stop and go", around town and live off a hill, but I would think that those things wouldn't make THAT MUCH of a difference (when reading what many of you guys get). I don't drive crazy and only put about 6,000mi per year on my vehicles.
Truck is stock, with the exception that I replaced the stock tires with new General Grabber AT2's, but they are still the stock size (245/75R16's).
I've read threads as to how to improve mpg, but I really just want to know how to get what I should be getting, or if something is wrong here. Thanks for any info on what my issue (if any) is.
