    Have a 2007 double cab driving 80 miles/day, and getting 24-26 mpg. The only thing I've done is to "slow down"! Driving 55 mph and using cruise. davis1002

    Welcome to the site. That is some good mileage, but going that slow seems to be a bit too much of a hazard for me. I just run with no AC and stick a few hundred feet behind a 18 wheeler.
