no more taco...

well guys. it's been a great ride but i think it's time to sell the taco.. gas mpg here in PA is only averaging me 14.5 and 16-17 hwy. everythings been checked out on my truck im running stock wheels and stock tire sizes it's only leveled along with replaced the air filter with a K&N and only picked up a half an mpg. truck only has 35,000 on it and if gas is going to suck either way anymore i might as well be driving a v8 full size again like my old titan ;(

Anybody have any gas milage suggestions on the following. 06+ rams with the Hemi, the FJ cruisers- only nice suv to own imo, 06+ ram 2500 with the 5.9l cummins, and the newer body tundras? just looking for some info from actual "people" not the estimated factory #'s who we all know are stretched beyond the truth sometimes.

My dad's actually looking at getting an 06 Dodge Cummins 2500 with the 5.9... A few guys we hunt with have them chipped and swear up and down that they get 22+ mpg regardless if they're in town, on the highway, hauling, towing.

Why not get a 4x2 Base Tacoma to save gas? Coming from a 4.0, I have to say the 2.7 is a great engine with great MPG's.

However, for an 06 5.9 with less than 100k miles they're wanting $25-30k

ya if not more. but i get all my vehicles from the acution and mmr has them at about 16 to 19 for an 06 with 65,000 which isn't bad but for an 06 it kinda is but not in retrospect after you take into consideration the powerplant and how those motors are the heart and soul of diesels.

Yeah but you also have to take into account that everything else besides the drivetrain on those trucks only lasts about 100k if that lol.

How much does your trailer / race bikes weigh?? 2.7 l is good for 3500 lbs.
