Advice

Just bought a new TRD double cab 4*4. Picking it up in February. 6spd manual... cant wait.. however im kinda freaked at the gas mileage... What do you say... can i get 400 kms out of it?... i hope...hahaa...V6

Anyway what would you say is the best Tonneau cover for the 2012.. The dealership sells them for about 1k.. or just over actually. But its meant for it, pretty nice actually. Any advice... ? shall i order online or something?

Cheers everyone...

Welcome to TW!

So you invested tens of thousands of dollars into a truck and never looked at the real life mileage? There are literally tons of threads on mileage in here so I would suggest searching for it. Consumer Reports also gives accurate data on mileage.

Never buy anything from the dealer - they are always higher priced.

I have gotten 13 miles per GALLON to 17 Mpg. None of that kilometer crap in here lol
