    Hey all, thought there should be a thread where all of us that drive a significant amount share our news, info, questions, etc...I myself do about 35k mi. a year now...got 26k mi. on my '11 Tacoma since I got in in Oct '10.

    30,000mi/year turns out to be 2,500 miles/month or 83.3 miles a day...even if you up there, chime in! :D


    Ill start with a question...anyone drive similar amount with 33" tires? Is this MPG Suicide? I already got my close to 3" lift on way....need tires to replace stockers very soon

    Cool thread topic, but I don't get anywhere near those kinds of miles a year, I'll subscribe as I love to hear high-mileage Toyota stories.

    did you really jump your truck that high without lt? that seems like suicide :eek:

    i dont drive 35k plus, but my job moved so now i drive about 70 miles a day round trip as my commute then travel most weekends (camping, wheeling, skiing, etc) so ill probably end up to 25-30k this year. running 265/75/16 duratracs with a 4cyl so i still get 20mpgs :D

    I pulled 58,600 on my 1999 AC 4x4 last year. I called that truck the bread winner for a reason.
    I can only hope that my 2011 DC Sport does that good. She's got some big boots to fill!

    Enough modifications to piss the wife off!!
    Had mine almost 2 weeks but I commute 108 miles a day, 3 to 4 days a week....so getting 30K a year won't be a problem. I still plan on a lift next year with something around 33" for tires. I buy tires every year anyway.

    I've got 15,000 miles in the past 6 months. I'd say I'm on pace for 30,000. :p




    I can get up to 20 MPGs with 33" KM2s if all my miles are on the freeway and cruise control set to 68 MPH. :p

    I've put in 62k miles so far this year. I was able to retire the Explorer I had and my company got me the Tacoma I wanted :D I got my 2013 AC with just over 15k miles on it. I've had it a week and a half and have put 1.5k miles on it; 375 of those today.

    Nice thread revival!!

    I drive 30k+ per year. I have 36k on it now and bought it October 12'. I was getting 21-22 MPG stock on 245 dingflops in my 13' DCLB4x4 V6. After my 3" lift and 275/70/17's I've dropped down to 15-16 :eek: I've been wanting to start a thread on mileage stats pre-lift and post-lift and haven't yet. I feel like I've seen a lot of guys getting 18 with lift and tires...
    My wife drives more than me :eek: her car was new in April and now has 25k.
    I'm going to look for a beater come spring, can't stand to watch the miles rack up this fast.
