    I think my Tacoma is broke in now. The mileage I got this past weekend on my way down to Palm Beach, was 20 + MPG at 70-80 MPH. :D

    How much mileage does your odometer read now?
    Curious as to what "broke in now" means exactly.

    what mileage are you at? i hit 20,000 a few weeks ago and and it was like an instant change. i used to be getting 16 to 17 mpg, but since 20 grand rolled around it's been 19 to 20. my driving habits haven't changed at all, but somethign must have.

    i'm in a v6 auto btw

    Wow, that is great mileage. I have almost 3K miles and I have not broken 16 mpg, in a v6 auto, basically stock. I would say 2500 of those miles are city, but I in no way run it hard. I would love to see 19! Hopefully it will come

    I think I will get a scangauge, I am obsessed with gas mileage...it would give me something to obsess over without a calculator.

    do you like in an area with lots of hills? i go to school in florida for 9 moths of the year, where speedbumbs are the biggest hills around, and the other 3 months i spend in northern VA, where there aren't many big elevation changes
