    Hi,

    I just bought a 2006 Tacoma with 18000 miles. It took me 14 gallons to make 186 miles, is that normal? I leave in Montreal in Canada and I was driving in town in normal condition except that it is pretty cold these days.

    doing donuts will use up alot of gas. I think your problem is just the way you drive your truck. If you slowed WAY down you'd do better. you keep getting tickets and talking about burnouts and donuts. All thats fine if all your concerned about is having fun, but if you want good mpg's you gotta stop it all....cold turkey. Maybe we need to have an intervention for you...
