How many km's are you getting to a tank (2nd Gen)

Hey guys,

So im trying to figure out if my taco will be more or less fuel Efficient then my old ford.

So my 06' Ford Exploder had a 4.0 V6 Auto with a 82L tank i could go a little over 600km(highway) in the ford using cruse at about 125km/h

Im currently getting almost 400km to a tank if i recall in my 2012 TRD DCSB 6M.

In the end this wont be relavent once the mods start coming but it would be interesting to know what people are getting.

Info on gas type, driving conditions (highway/city), cruse, speed, and last is any mods such as front bumpers and what not causeing the rig to be heavy?

Somewhere around 450 to a tank with the winter gas. 500+ on summer stuff. 91 octane. That's from full to just when the light comes on.

Alright GTK, i figured it being winter and running around in RWD with having such a light rear end had something to do with it, ill be running 91 come spring time and have had a oilchange, i normally ran reg in the ford but whenever i used 91 i always got an improvment all around.

Im going to say that running a 4 banger helps, i went with a V6 due to the fact that i want to put some bigger tires and other offroad equipment along with eventually a S/C
