    New member's first post. My first Toyota truck was called a Hi-Lux. It was a "One Ton". Before they became Tacoma's. My 2002 is over 100,000 miles now. Never had a problem. In preparing for my sixth new one, I'm concerned about mileage. I get 24mpg at 70mph now with my trusty four cylinder. Pulling a small pop-up camper and my one man bass boat on a jet ski trailer, I still get 18.8mpg. What kind of honest mileage are you guys getting with the newer up-sized Tacoma?[​IMG]

    With my generator, I 4x4 way back in the woods where most people can't go and set up on ponds/strip pits that haven't seen people. My way of relaxing. And catch lots of big fish. Sirius radio hook up also.
