Well I work about 1.5 miles from my house...So my mileage suffers big time. I have to go through 4 stop lights and the speed limit is 30MPH...I'll go through a tank in about 2weeks with just going to work and sitting in my truck idleing just waiting to leave work.

you said you have a double cab right? that's why. i get anywhere from 23 mpg at the lowest to 26-27...

also you have the older 2.7...

btw do you know how big your tank is? cause us 2nd gens have a 21 gallon tank....

that is roughly 28 mpg, I find this hard to believe since it exceeds manufactures recommended. Most of us have been around 19-22 mpg at its best. I also run the same size tires with exceptional care on driving habits to see my maximum mpg ouput. This is city driving

^ Gas Tank holds 21 gallons. If you get 25 mpg you can go 500 miles on only 20 gallons. However, I drive too fast, and have 1 too many lugs, to ever approach that efficiency.

I got 340 miles on one tank. Not bad for all city driving. . thats keeping rpm under 2500. Also not bad considering I have no deck plate mod or CAI. Bone stock. plus its a Dcab 4cyl automatic!! not bad at all

what are you guys getting? just curious. thanks
i thought the DC only came with the v6?

I get about 22mpg on average if I am cruising on the Autobahn I get about 15mpg. I can normally go about 375 to 400 miles on a tank. It really depends on how fast I am driving. At 105 mph my gas mileage really sucks.

I saw a double cab without an SR5 package the other day. Would that make it a 4 banger?

07 Access 2.7l, 4x4, 5 speed = 21 to 23 mpg mixed (tire: 40-45 psi , 1 - 1000' above sea level). Never saw anything above that, I removed 2nd filter and have k&n in OEM air box. So fess up! Or, tell me what mod gives you > 25 mpg in 2nd gen 4x4 2.7l?
