Hi guys I need some opinions on fuel efficency. I like the mpgs from the 4 cyl, but don't like the acceleration. I know the 6cyl will have the power but don't like the mpg's.
The question is which would have better CITY mpg? 4 cyl prerunner access cab regeared to 4.56 to improve acceleration or 6cyl prerunner access cab. Assume no lift and the stock tires.
I know regearing loses highway mpg's, but I only do about 5% highway driving so that really isn't a concern. There would be no towing, minimal payload and virtually no offroad.
To me it just seems like it would be cheaper overall to regear a 4 than to own the 6 if I just want a commuter with a little more pep in it's step around town.
Don't beat me up too bad, I'me sure this has been discussed in previous threads.
