    Lame. I don’t know how Toyota rates them at 23mpg highway when most highway speeds in the country are between 65-80.

    The tests are done at 55 mph. If you actually do 55 mph, these trucks do pretty well. If you do 75, not so much.

    Yah, my tires are not E rated, which makes a big difference. I also run an oil catch can, not sure if that actually helps or doesn’t...I try to coast when I can and feather the throttle on the highway. Even at 80mph here in Idaho I can still get 17-18

    Latest 2.0 final 04B04 (3-tanks of premium in) - Just got 23 on a 100-mile round trip yesterday with the family loaded up. 245/75r16, stock + bed cover. Air damn long gone. Traveling 60-70 and another catch can vote (@SpeySquatch). I was not driving aggressive but certainly like others have said getting up over 75 and pushing it or adding more gear is going to tank it.

    IMO trying to push this square front end above 75 drastically reduces mpg.

    If I remember my aerodynamics from 40+ years ago, drag increases something like to the cube of speed increase. Double the speed, drag increases by a factor of eight. With our Tacoma’s, we’re pushing a brick.

    my experience with stock tires is that the car will eat up gas over 68 on the highway. I used to get 23 highway before larger tires.

    I’ve gotten 20ish at those speeds. But as soon as I got off the highway all the city driving killed the milage

    OG user here. Been tuned since 1.02 back in December 2017. Currently running 2.0 final, premium, 33" tire tune. Tires are 275 70 17 KO2s. Honestly, this tune is perfect. I have probably 700 miles on it now and it has smoothed right out. My fuel econ has gone up, previously the best I could get was 17 mpg, now I get 19 if I'm driving normally. The truck still feels a little sluggish, but honestly that won't be fixed with just a tune. I still plan on going the twin turbo route once the bugs are worked out, but until then this tune is perfect.
    P.S. If you want to go fast, put it in S mode and keep your RPMs above 4k. These trucks can move when they're in the sweet spot.

    04b04 premium 33 stock gear thx ... shifting is okay but still searches for gears on the highway into work. Gas mileage is .4 better so 12.4 (getting crap after lift and mt tires) At about 400 might try the non thx version.

    Just one off Amazon with good reviews and an included filter. Just get real fuel hose. By the way this was my first (longer) trip with the catch can...best mpg so far coincidence? Maybe.

    I emptied the can today and it had about a teaspoon of watery oil come out

    I have about 600 miles with the new tune, 04B04 Premium stock and its been a dream. It shifts well, has a good amount of power with off the line go and no down shifts or double downshifts on hills. I think this will be my final flash. This is so much better than the same tune with THX for 04B04 which bogged hard in first gear when trying to accelerate.

    Did my first Tow on the 5.29 33” Premium Non THX. I’m running 285 E loads with full size spare. Prolly about 250lbs added weight total. Trailer weighs about 3800lbs. Travelled 176 miles and averaged 10.6mpg corrected. Loving the tune and how it performs. Towed the trailer very well. My mpg sucks but oh well. Got another much longer trip planned towing the trailer this holiday weekend up some decent grades so it’ll be a really good test.

    Don't swap until final and or don't swap at all..its all optional to swap. If ur happy with ur tune keep it and thats it. Don't have to take any future tunes

    I love it when I log in for the day and see I only have 12 posts to catch up on. This thread has become such a chore to follow.

    P.S I usually only read this thread when I take my morning dump. It’s fitting due to most of its content. Some days my legs fall asleep.

    There, now I feel better. Sorry for the TMI.

    I always found the adaptive cc would drop me in gears in order to stay behind the car in front and maintain speed, it is so weird, I never use it, I really don't like the way it behaves. It was the same in the RAV and the Corolla, maybe I'm using it wrong, idk, makes no matter, just never use it.

    i dont care for the deceleration when gaining on a car 2 football fields away, i would rather it give me the option to move to another lane before slowing down
