Ya, but you cheat. Your engine is only running on the way home back up the hill

Don't know how you pulled 26+ on the trip to Memphis at 80+ though. I hit the freeway at 80 and I'm down to the high 22s.

How much does the topper effect your MPG. I'd assume it hurt?

Have you tried with and without?

I had the truck for about 2 months without it.
No change... in fact, my worst highway tank (80+ in Texas) was the same as this last trip, 22, but it was like that for the entire trip, where my recent trip averaged 24 (swings from 26 to 22), and my wife was with me... which meant double the weight in luggage and more than double the occupant weight.

I am getting between 19-21 all city driving.
I find that shell gasoline give me 19 and change.. but Mobile gives me on average about 20.5 I drive 20 miles rt to work down a 3 lane busy road with about a million red lights, and I usually catch them all.

I have not taken my truck on a highway trip but I am leaving for Disney World in a couple of hours and I will be tracking it.

My truck is bone stock with 6k on it.

You're going to love your highway mileage IF you keep your speed under 65-70.
Crank it to 75 and you'll drop 2mpg.

On the way home...

On the way home...I am going to set the cruise on 68 and see what I can get! I do have nitrogen filled tires or I'd bump them to 35 psi would that assist in getting more mpg

We usually take my wife's 10 accord and get between 29 and 30 mpg but the lighting (headlights are brighter and light more of the road and i dont have fog lights on the tacoma... yet) comfort and space made taking our double cab more enjoyable

Nitrogen is a scam if you paid for it.

The air that you are sitting in is 80% nitrogen.
Pure nitrogen is used in aviation and racing applications because it does not add oxygen to a fire. There are zero advantages to consumer vehicles.

And the numbers are in finally
Tank with mostly 75 mpg 402.5 16.9gals 23.82
Tank mostly between 65-68 447 on 17.7 25.25
I also noticed that I had less downshifting (oviously) but more importantly I noticed temps were lower and it was nice not worrying about some cop with a chip on their shoulder... Rich you were spot on with the milage...

My best tank so far is:
526 Miles / 19.515 Gallons = 26.95 MPG, 70% Highway driving.

Only mods done are a tonneau cover and tire pressures at 36 psi all around.
Truck is at about 3,500 miles or so right now. I figure most of engine break-in is already done. Overall, satisfied with my mileage. Coming from a Nissan Versa with 29-30 MPG average is not too bad a compromise.

Speed, as noted, kills the MPGs. If you can find a parallel route with lower speed limits that doesn't add significant time to the commute/trip, you can really appreciate some decent FE.

Except stop signs and traffic signals offset that savings and end up hurting more than the reduced speed helps.

Best to just stay in the right lane on the highway and keep it a bit below the limit. 55-65 (indicated) seems to be the sweet spot.

I just got my L4 Tacoma. After 3 fill ups I'm averaging 21.3. It's a 5 speed 4x4 reg cab. I bought an ultra gauge and have gotten up to 23.6 for an average (on the ultra gauge). I have a fuelly account but I don't know how to put it in my posts.[
