    I got 21 last 1/2 tank. I have been towing the boat on Saturdays for the last 6 weeks so it is hard to say for a full tank. I figured after backing out the towing if was about 20. It is or was still going up. I got 20 • 21 consistently in my 2009 Prerunner DCSB with 265/75/16 Duratracs.

    OP that is the biggest Tacoma and will get the worst MPG. Expect 13 or 14. Be happy if more, be fine with less.

    Or buy something else.

    I regularly see 18-21 in mine...minimal hwy driving, but live out in the sticks, not a ton of stop and go. Your driving habits will really affect your MPG...ie...taking off from a stop and not coasting as much as possible. I just turned 15k on mine and the milleage has improved as it has broken in. I also seen a bit better MPG when using premium fuel as well....
