Happy with MPG

Trip to work: 15 min county road,10 minute interstate,15 minute city
First tank MPG: 19.1
Second tank : 19.6
Going from 32 MPG Accord to 19 mpg:
Doing that while looking good in a Tacoma: PRICELESS

And most of you say the mileage will get better?!?!

I have 3700 on my 09 and I am getting 19.8 to 21 on dirt roads and around town very consistantly. My first long trip was at 1100 miles and I drove almost 700 in one day and got 22.8 to 23.1 the entire way driving about 73-75 mph with cruise. Depending on your driving habits and how heavy you let your right foot get as to the mileage. I am about to change my oil to Synthetic and will see if there is any difference....oh and this is all on 87 octane

Right on, great news to hear!I ran 87 on my first two tanks also. I'm driving easy now, and will probably continue the habit...nice to have the power to back me up if I need it.

Noticed you have the husky liners fr and rr. Are you happy with them? I may get some before winter.

I had the factory Tacoma rubber mats and they are just too short. I am really liking the huskey liners. They cover all the way back on the drivers side and also cover the foot rest as well. I just took them out the other day to clean them...just hosed them off and spayed a little simple green on a rack and wiped them down and clean as new. Was well worth the money imo.

I have the factory TRD mats in now. Will they fit on top, or will I need to take the oem mats out first?

I took the OEM out otherwise it would be too bulky I think. The huskey liners have a great system on the bottom that holds them in place with the carpet flooring. I figure I will keep the OEM for those days when I am not working and the wife and I are traveling somewhere.
