    Those with 350 miles on your tank..... Are you running a 4cylinder?

    As mentioned above - I get about 305 per tank and that's a 4.0L.

    This is a well-timed thread, since I picked up the new V6 Taco on 12/24 and am still working on the first (dealer-provided) tankfull. Almost 300 miles so far and just about touching the 1/4 line. I am eager to see how the numbers on the first few fill-ups turn out.

    Bought a 2008 DC tacoma TRD at the first of december. First 2 tanks got almost 300 miles before light came on. Next 2 tanks got 280. Then installed a 6 in Pro Comp lift w/ 305 X 17 tires. Every week mileage goes down, at 225 with less than a 1/4 of a tank. Took it to dealership and had test done. They said something is definately wrong. Taking it in today for service. Will advise after picked up!!
