    Driving like an asshole my 5 lug got 28.3 on the last tank. That includes a lot of quick starts, 2nd and 3rd gear pulls, and frequent cruising at 80-90+. :D

    That's weird my truck is the same as yours highway I get about 24mpg I leave my tailgate down
    And city at least 20 mpg, my highway changes depending on the wind
    Try putting your tailgate down when you drive you'll notice less drag

    4x4 Mt, regular cab rated at 18city 20Highway. I have been getting an avg of 24 over the last month.

    Some town, some highway. Soft foot and easy shifts around town and under 65 on highway seem to be key.

    My numbers were worse when truck was new and we were on the winter gas.

    Tailgate down = increased drag.

    My mpg improved at around 10,000, coinsided with switch to summer gas but I think breakin has a lot to do with. I drive pretty soft but, it's a truck and needs to worked every now and then.

    02 DblCab PreRunner 100,000miles, new plugs, removed the air intake snorkel and installed a K&N (just for kicks), mpg is 18 city; mostly short hops. 20-21 Highway at 65mph. I can't imagine much better and I'll see on my summer trips.

    In comparison the mileage is only 1-2mpg city from my wife's 09 CRV. I think the Taco is doing pretty good considering the vehicle weight and truck qualities.

    According to a test done on Mythbusters which include windtunnel and actual fuel consumption measurements, tailgate up produces less drag than down.
    The best result in their testing was removal and using a net.

    2009 4WD Reg cab Taco. Keepin it simple.
    So far I've added an Advance folding bed cover and since removed it. Gave it to my son in Maine, he has an 05 2wd. GT perfect fit seat covers. Weathertech floor mats and window vent visors. Waag center brush/grill guard. Hose clamp tailgate mod. Turned off the seat belt chime. Added Ultra-Gauge. Trailer hitch. Softopper. Replaced sun visors with slide out style. Toyota bed extender. Had Firestone Destinations and now Michelin LTX AT2 in stock size. More mods to come; Fog lights, locking storage in bed, intermittent wipers. Now looking for Radio/HU upgrade. and maybe a lift way down the road.
    I don't recall ever getting 17 mpg or worse. Last tank up was 24.1 mpg. Normally in the 22 to 23 range. I normally drive like my hair is on fire but this last fill up I've been taking it easy to see how good I can actually get being a responsible adult. Which sucks btw.
    2009 4cyl 4x4 5spd manual. Use A/C a little when its real hot. Otherwise I have the windows open. Bed covered with a rigid folding cover.

    My worse was 18, winter gas, cold, not broken in. Now getting consistant 24.

    I think I could squees a few more mpg if I over inflated the tires but like the ride better at 30psi.

    2007 - 4x4 / 5 speed / 4 cyl / Access Cab - all stock except for AFE Drop In and secondary filter removed. 2/3 hwy and 1/3 in town (on base)...consistently average 22 to 23 MPG, best 23.5 and worst 18.9 (during worst part of winter on Blizzak Studless winter tires). When I think about and try I get 23 MPG...when I don't concentrate on it I get 21.5 to 22 MPG. FWIW....
