    Anything over 60 and it's like driving a brick through wind. Aerodynamics on trucks are marginal at best. If it makes you feel better my truck never sees anything over 60mph and still gets bad mileage...

    Yeah....but the 4 cylinder was never about MPG, contrary to what some people believe. It's offered to help meet a price point.

    Does not make me feel better. Once in a while you see someone claiming 23mpg or something like that on here. I've never been close.

    Off roads are at a slight disadvantage without the bumper spoiler thing. Averaging 73ish on my last road trip I only got 21 MPG over 720 miles. The first 60 miles are heavily policed and I was driving 60. I was getting 23.8.

    Basically I think 20 is very reasonable if you're driving 70-75. I have an SR with a tonneau and chin spoiler.

    I also don't carry a tool shed in my truck at all times.

    I can get gas (resets the mpg thing) and get 23-24 on my way home until I start going up that damn mountain. It's dropped to almost 12 some times if I just got gas. Gonna be interesting whenever I do move away from here.

    Ah, karma. Douche with a silver diesel Denali cut me off pulling out of a side road (stood on my damned brakes) then gassed it blowing black exhaust being a macho man.. well when he did that his tailgate opened and some rather expensive looking tool cases fell out on Route 302 and slid onto the shoulder. I got behind him and beeped at him trying to get his attention and was frantically pointing.. got flipped the bird and off he went..

    Looked expensive whatever it was.:rofl:

    Speaking of tools being scattered along the highway; I bet there's still some of my wrenches on the side of the PA Turnpike near Harrisburg from when we got rolled over a couple years ago. My toolbag was on the side of the road and I tried to pick up what I could see, but there's some Craftsman ratcheting wrenches that are missing...

    Well just bit the bullet and bought a 6 pk cans of CRC 06026 off Amazon to do the frame and undercarriage on the Tacoma. Supposed to be here next Monday, so I guess I got to completely scrub down the frame and suspension on Sunday. Looks to be almost the same stuff as the RP342, but at a slightly less price. My back is already starting to feel it crawling around under the thing :laugh: We'll see how it holds up!
