    I have 3700 on my 09 and I am getting 19.8 to 21 on dirt roads and around town very consistantly. My first long trip was at 1100 miles and I drove almost 700 in one day and got 22.8 to 23.1 the entire way driving about 73-75 mph with cruise. Depending on your driving habits and how heavy you let your right foot get as to the mileage. I am about to change my oil to Synthetic and will see if there is any difference....oh and this is all on 87 octane

    Right on, great news to hear!:DI ran 87 on my first two tanks also. I'm driving easy now, and will probably continue the habit...nice to have the power to back me up if I need it.

    Noticed you have the husky liners fr and rr. Are you happy with them? I may get some before winter.

    I had the factory Tacoma rubber mats and they are just too short. I am really liking the huskey liners. They cover all the way back on the drivers side and also cover the foot rest as well. I just took them out the other day to clean them...just hosed them off and spayed a little simple green on a rack and wiped them down and clean as new. Was well worth the money imo.

    I have the factory TRD mats in now. Will they fit on top, or will I need to take the oem mats out first?

    I took the OEM out otherwise it would be too bulky I think. The huskey liners have a great system on the bottom that holds them in place with the carpet flooring. I figure I will keep the OEM for those days when I am not working and the wife and I are traveling somewhere.
