    Stick on hood scoop from Autozone.
    I usually get about 200 miles on the first half and 150-175 on the second half. I always fill up before the light comes on though.

    I was thinking the same thing....

    If you get 200 in the first half of the tank - you can't assume you're gonna get 400 for the total tank.

    On my 4 cyl manual trans I get between 250-270 on the first half. If I fill then to prevent sticker shock, It takes right at 10 gallons to fill. At 1/4 tank level I am usually right around 400 miles. It takes about 15 gallons to fill at that point.

    200 on first half, Impressive, no lift and big tires will do that for you. Unfortunately those of us with those mods dont get close to that (mods, personal choice). but 200 thats sweet!!

    nice let us know how the overall mpg for the tank turns out. I agree the 2nd 1/2 goes faster.

    I regularly get 190-200 on 1/2 tank, but I'm lucky to get past 300 before the light comes on.

    Screw it. I just drive and look for cheap gas. I have kids man, I can't bog my mind down with watching a tachometer all day. At the end of the day, I'm still saving a fortune off my Expedition that I traded in for the Tacoma.

    Filled up today. Had 309 on my last tank, but that was pretty much coasting into the gas station...
    Lot of city stuff. Pulling and loading trees from the storm.
