    That is the weird part. I am on stock SL tires, no armor or lift.

    I always had a massive lust for the RVT, but that range was a big deal. Of course, it was probably right for the ergos.

    200mi+ range is a nice thing for either commuting or trips.

    I don't get how my 2003 4Runner that weighed 4,280lbs got consistently around 19.5mpg and my 2018 Tacoma Sport that weighs almost exactly the same gets 2mpg less with a smaller engine.

    Hypermilers are the bane of my existence. It's like they don't think about the effects their shitty driving has on the people around them.

    Makes me want to drop a few years while I'm tailgating them just to bring balance to the force.

    Yep! But IMO, 99% of the Prius / hybrid drivers are not trying to be a hypermiler. They just suck or are uber / lyft drivers.

    I think that I have seen for real hypermilers a few times.

    I'm always asking myself, is this person hypermiling or a Washington driver? Usually you can tell because hypermilers are in the right lane and wa drivers are in the passing lane :rofl:

    Exactly! That is the determining factor.

    What type of driving? Have you done a baseline by driving a long stretch of flat-ish freeway? Driving 70MPH, gently, I am at or slightly above EPA ratings. Mix in city driving, too many variables.

    4x4 and 2wd trucks are a big variable too. I think a lot of people claiming 20 plus mpg have 2wd trucks. My 4x4 running 105 base tune with 265/70 17s and usually get 18.5-19.5 mpg. Sometimes on a good day I can get 20

    4x4 with MT gearing here.

    Just plunked this up:
    https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/just-thought-this-was-pretty-amazing.615704/#post-20911065

    On trips (non-commuting), I have never seen less than 21.5mpg for a full tank.

    I believe @LivinOnEdge is a 4x4 OR also.

    If i drive like normal i get 19 to 21.

    I drove conservative for 2 full tanks while still keeping up with traffic and managed 23.3 and 24.2 .

    This is with a TRD OR DCSB 6mt.

    Those last two tanks required effort to achieve, so i reverted back to normal driving

    Same. I can only Prius-drive for so long.

    I was harder with our old turbo Saab. I couldn't make it through a single tank without letting loose. It sounded so good on the intake and exhaust.

    When I drive through our national park at 45 mph I can get 24mpg, but seems like trying to go 70 mph knocks me down to barely 20 or under.
