    Why are we getting pretty much the same gas milage on our Tacomas as everyone else gets on theirs full size trucks?????? I have been reading all these threads and it just made me think about it. What do you guys think. For example. My '06 TRD off Road 4x4 6cyl 6 speed 4x4 NO LIFTS or Big Tires is getting 15.9 AVG
    F-150 and other full size trucks are getting that. ??????? Whats the deal?????

    There is no way a 6,000 lb V-8 truck is getting the same mileage as a V-6 Tacoma period...end of story! Anybody who says so is miss informed.

    What do you think the optimal tire pressure should be to get the greatest gas mileage on a 09 trd dbl cab? Stock everything.

    I had a V8 Dakota before the Tacoma and I'm averaging about 4 mile per gallon more. That's about 80 more miles per tank!

    V8 Dakotas suck gas.

    Some fullsizes do get close on the highway, in the city, I doubt as much. I would be most Silverado's with the 5.3, even 4wd, would rival our mpg. Tundras, on the highway can push 17-18mpg (4wd 5.7) with their 6spd trannies. I can't imagine any of the F150s prior to their new engine lineup coming close as they're the one fullsize, along with Titans, that almost ALL owners claim horrendous gas mileage. It's a tossup, but the gap is narrowing, IMHO. Then again, our trucks aren't "small" by any means.

    The new F150 with ecoboost is targeted at 21 mpg highway, 15 mpg city...

    THAT will rival our midsizes.
