    Hey Everyone,
    Well its time i give up my 98 Jeep Wrangler and switch to a Tacoma; I have found an 06 Access TRD with plenty of extras for a very good price here in sunny san diego.

    The jeep was fun but its just not functional anymore for my line of work. My biggest question to everyone is...

    Now i know the V6 is "supposed" to get 22mpg, but realistically what does it get on the highway?

    Also, anything that anyone feels is a must to get ?


    Thanks in advance,

    Sean

    Welcome to TacomaWorld.

    IF you did do a steady 55 MPH on the highway you'll probably get the magical 22 MPG. Good luck with that. :p

    Ha that is what i figured! So do you think cold air intake is a wise investment? I put one on my jeep and it went from 13mpg to 14mpg :)

    The stock intake isn't all that restrictive. I would save the money and remove the secondary filter and replace the OEM air filter with a high flow filter. The aFe Dry Pro S is my personal favorite.
