Honestly could not tell you. I was not really tracking the mpg's then. I know it will not be happy when I put a winch in her.

If I lost even 1mpg, I would be surprised. I did my suspension, tires and bumper all around the same time and total loss was only about 1.5 mpg.

My average economy is only 14.5mpg. I bought my truck in Nov. Out here that means mostly e-gas, 20 min. of warmup daily. That's 2 hours of idle time! I can't forget all the miles of 4x4 on snowy roads too.

I've had a best tank of 20.1 and a worse tank of 11.9. I'm hoping on 18-19mpg this summer. I've had a couple in the high 16's and a low 17 lately. It may be wishful thinking, I'm getting braver with the wheeling.

So, back to the original question. I don't think you'll have major drop in mileage, though it appears there is a wide range of effects on things with these Tacomas.

How's that for useless babble.

That much gain? Hmm... might have to ditch these KM2's for Duratracs. Been thinking about it alot lately actually. I'd be more than happy to even gain back .5-1mpg

And getting better mileage with a snorkel.... just making it that much more obvious I need to get one. Not only would it fix my intake woes with my removed inner fenders, but they look sick too. win win win

So the 3 reasons I went duratracs.... bad ass looks and traction, way better mileage, silent on the road.

I have only done 1 fill up with the snorkel, but I am now on my next tank about @ 1/2 way mark. I i have already done 189 miles...... That the most I have ever had at half a tank. But I did all highway miles yesterday and so that may be a little out of the norm for me. I would be willing to bet that I get almost 380 to a tank on this one.

Ya I kept it right at the speed limit on the highway, but something else to consider is that all these miles are at 4600-5600 feet altitude. Being down on power and sucking for air, I think that this snorkel with CAI is just helping out a ton. I doubt I would see that much of a difference had I added one of these at sea level.

That is funny I just switched from MT Baja MTZ's to Duratrac's myself. Ordered a set of 285/75 R16's from my cousin and had them the next day. You just needed a bit of a wider tire.

My last tank was 16.697. The highest to date from when I have been measuring and 3.131 mpg better then 6 months ago

Funny thing is my truck is now the heaviest it has ever been. I added two more ATO skids. I was also on it hard at every light + a couple 1/4 mile runs so I could hear my new DT Y pipe.

I did also just change my spark plugs, clean my air filter, and lose the crap 2-1/4" rear Y pipe n cats for a nice 2-1/2" mandrel bent Y with resonators

What's the deal with low gas mileage?

I have a new '12 Toco V6 automatic with off road package and I am averaging 19 MPG city/highway (49 %/ 51 %). I generally set my cruse control at 70 MPH when on the highway and the only performance add-on is a TRD Exhaust which tends to make my foot heavy. I hope to reach 20 to 21 MPG for highway mileage on my next vacation. To date, I've gotten up to 21.8 mpg by keeping speed down to 60 mph during my daily commute.

I would advise researching real world data from a reputable source (Consumer Reports) BEFORE purchasing, not some POS window sticker the car dealership uses to entice you into a purchase.

That said, this is not the area to bitch about it.










Anyone got any real world snorkel data they can input? Out of 30 guys someone had to track their mileage besides me........

I keep very close track of every mile and gallon and record it all in a booklet in my truck. My snorkel is in my cab awaiting install around end of April. By then I will have two months straight of every mpg recorded and be able to start tracking for improvements with snorkel added.

Ill try and be as thorough as possible. Might be calling you for last minute tips on install come the end of April too

I'm glad to hear we can get some more numbers besides mine.

Keep in mind the winter gas will be providing you worse mileage now so try to run a couple tanks of summer gas before your install or do it asap

Now that I know I'll be installing a snorkel in the next week or so I think I can add some info here. I'm ANAL about keeping track of mileage etc. I record everything I do to and with the Toy. Every fuel fill, oil change, tire rotation, susp. alt., etc. is recorded in a log book.

Anyhow, I hope I can be helpful.
