    I'm brand new to this web site and I just purchased an 07 Tacoma crew cab 4.0 6 cylinder long bed and was just curious about the kind of mileage anybody is getting on theirs. I'm getting around 17 to 18 mpg. with about 500 miles on the truck.

    Not much. Toyota bed mat, Toyota step bars, tinted windows, Toyota seat covers, Toyota all-weather mats, quart of Wild Turkey in the glove box, KelTec PT3AT in the center console, backseat full of old speeding tickets
    I have run almost three tanks of gas through my new truck and got 17.4 mpg on the last tank......ALL city driving though. I have just over 800 miles on my 2007 4.0 double cab. I have not had it on the highway yet. Man, that puppy will hit 70 mph in a blink!

    Just got 20 mpg dead even on our 4x4 Access cab 2.7 liter 4 cylinder.Mostly around town
    Currently about 2000 miles on it.

    My FJ Cruiser with the V6 6Speed manual tranny has been getting 16 so I am really happy with 20 mpg.

    Still not sure why Toyota felt the need to make the FJ Cruiser full time AWD :confused: with the manual transmission. I am sure the mileage would be better if it was part time 4wd

    I need to get mine out on the highway. I think I will take it to San Antonio this weekend. It needs a good long easy drive before its first oil change... We shall see how that goes.

    About the same specs except I'm an automatic. I get around that. Maybe 17 or 18 for highway driving.

    20.5 in summer and 19.5 in winter here. I drive mostly hwy at 65-75. That was with the OEM BFG ATs that weigh in about 49 lbs. I just put ST Maxxs on it and suspect that they may have cost me a little bit in MPGs. Some sites listed the weight on the Coopers at 49 but according to a few people on here who contacted Cooper they are 53.

    Almost 2 years in now and at 17.3. Best is 22.3 (before lift and tires) and worst was 15.2. Been averaging right around 17 since lift and tires 265/70/17 Cooper AT/3's. Steady mix of driving - about 50/50 highway and city. Better MPG's in summer. Relatively heavy foot and 65-75 on highways. I've been lighter on the go pedal since lift and tires to help though.

    I think the 15.2 was an anomaly or I effed up the math. I use MPG for free in my iphone and punch in the gallons and trip reading on fill ups. Can't say I'm thrilled but it's a truck and knew what I was getting into. I cringe at some of these sub 14 numbers but understand they come from added weight and probably 285's in most cases.

    I drive around 45k a year and each state is a little different. The more windy it is the mpg takes a hit. The road compound that is used in each state is different. This will change 4 mpg for me. I'm very lucky to live in a state that gives me the best mpg. Oh, never use cruse control if you're worried about mpg. At least that's my experience. Make sure you are factoring tire size if you changed. A stock setup is not 100% accurate either. I run a scan gauge 2 and in the past calculated each tank till I got it right. I have a 2014 dclb 2.5" lift, 285s and hit 19 to 20 average. Your foot makes a huge difference too. Driving a stock truck and driving a truck with bigger tires is like going from gas to diesel. There is a learning curve. My two cents.
