Hey folks. I was just looking up some reviews on 2nd gen 4 cylinder Tacomas over on Edmunds when I noticed that under specs it listed the Tacoma as having a 21 gallon gas tank. Is that correct? If so, that's massive for a 4-banger and wouldn't that mean around 450-500+ miles per tank?
I currently drive a 95 Ford Ranger with the 2.3 and auto trans and I average around 330-350 miles per tank (16.5 gal tank) during the summer and 300-320 miles during the winter. My next truck is either gonna be another 4 cyl Ranger or a 4 cyl 2nd gen auto 2WD Tacoma and right now I'm leaning towards an access cab Tacoma. Are there any negatives at all to switching to a Tacoma from a Ranger?
BTW, I'm gonna go with the access cab model simply because I prefer the bucket seats due to my height. I tried getting in a 2008 regular cab once before and lets just say that it didn't happen. Also, I have just one more question and this is probably gonna sound really stupid. Do the access cab Tacomas get the same mileage as a regular cab? I've always wondered that so I just thought I'd ask. Thanks folks.
