    Wow. Just hope that you don't get the same wind as a headwind coming back. Aerodynamics really do make a hell of a difference...

    29.5! No wonder, it's all downhill, right? : )
    Just curious, what was your avg. speed? under 65?

    I get ~22 mpg, but I drive 75-80, so I guess I pay a premium for getting places quicker.

    I got 21.1 going back from Tahoe to the bay. Mostly downhill from Tahoe to Sac with 4WD on, snow and rain. Once I got past the snow I was running around 60-70 depending on the road conditions.

    Then on the next tank I got 15.1 driving like an ass everywhere and only did like 15% highway driving on that tank.

    It would be cool to have a Tacoma ralley where we would drive some where for a gathering.
