    With a little over 750 miles on the Tacoma it took it's first road trip:

    Va Beach to Boston: 582.8 miles / 19.949 gallons = 29.2 mpg

    Boston to Va Beach: 573.9 miles / 19.272 gallons = 29.8 mpg

    One tank with "plenty" to spare .... although I did put in a few gallons on the Eastern Shore before crossing the Chesapeake Bay Bridge - Tunnel [​IMG] .

    I'll take this.

    i just went to outer banks, nc and back to cincinnati and only got about 22mpg. mine is a 2.7 4x4 access cab, but i'm guess it had a lot to do with the mountains that i had to go over.

    That is good. I just drove back from NJ yesterday (about 570 miles) and got 22mpg but I was running 80mph most of the way. I've gotten 23mpg when driving more conservatively (sanely).
