    Around 65-80 ish I'm getting about 21+ average on mostly highway. If I'm punching it around town I'll get around 16.5+. 2010 double cab 4x4 trd off road. Using 91 octane, primarily QuikTrip only. Also no, I'm not trying to "conserve" fuel by any means. Simply keeping tabs to monitor overall health/performance down the road.

    Stats on just over 3000 on the odo:
    Average: 19.07
    Max: 21.57
    Worst: 16.97

    Using "Mileage" on Android to put in info every fill. Each ODO reading is the main display, no tenths.

    I have an '07 double cab 4x4 with a roll-up tonneau. With the smaller 16" wheels I was running about 20-22 mpg. With the 17" TRD sport wheels I dropped to 18-20 mpg. I'm fairly nice to the truck when I drive, not putting around but not driving like I stole it either. You might pick up a mpg or 2 without the 4x4 drive train?

    Combined city and highway driving over the last 2 months I've owned mine I am averaging 20.04. The last fill up I got 21.39. Seems that I get better milage if I fill up at a BP station. At least that is what my records are indicating. This is with an octane rating of 87.

    No because it's mostly freeway, and i'm assuming your truck is going to be auto with no mods, I think you can get 18-20 depending on how heavy your foot is.

    Did you calculate in the difference in the circumference of the different tires and then recalculate the fuel useage?
    I see people talking about the change of tires making a difference in fuel use due to weight, but, I just can't go there. Tire weight over a full tank of gas should be negligible - Unless the new tires are big enough to fit a huge construction machine! :)

    09 DC SB 4x4 TRDOR no mods and automatic, I get about 19mpg avg, most is highway going to work with light traffic each day so it's not a constant 70mi. I was putting 91 in there when I first bought it, but after putting 87 in last time, it got the same so I'm sticking with that for most fillups.
