    Gas mileage? That's interesting, I don't think I've ever seen that topic posed here... ;)

    Here is what I've had with my Tacoma, V6, 4x4, 6spd, stock size wheels. Any number above 22 is a miscalculation due to a partial fill or something, and anything under 15 is either from towing a substantial trailer or also a bad calculation.

    As you can see, mine is just not getting the same efficiency it used to. I believe it is due to increased usage of ethanol in the fuel.
