    I have both 4cylinder and 6cylinder 01 and 02 tacos. The 6cylinder came with super charger factory installed and factory tires. the 4cylinder was re-gear to 5.29 and run on 33x12.50x15 Toyo tires M/T. when drive around local street they seem to consume the same amount of gas but once out to off road my 4cylinder is consumes less gas than the v6. these are just my trucks yours' could be different stories who knows.

    Not true. At 2.5K i got a 3" lift with no change in MPGs. I have a 280 to 350 mile/week commute and run two sets of tires. I use the stock Dungflops (30.47") for commuting and put on the 255/85/16 BFG KM2s (33.3") for off roading. I left the BFGs on for a week and only got 1MPG less than when I run the Dungflops and that included 60 miles of off roading. I get around 20 MPG on winter gas and 24 MPG on summer gas on my drive to & from work doing 35 MPH 5%, 70 MPH 5% & 75 MPH 90% of the trip. Elevation goes from 4450 to 4100 with a lot of up & down in between.

    Coming from a ninja that runs a Four banger (me) first off if you plan on getting one be prepared to get right off the bat: Exaust, headers, air intake... thats if you want lift on 31s... Ive had 32 BFG ko's and she didnt struggle to push them she just lagged in power... now that I switched to 31s thats changed. I recently took my spacer lift off and am waiting to throw some billys and OMEs i got in the garage on so on my setup im running arround 270 to a tank.... I just did all the oils/ fluids in the truck and this tank I plan on getting close to 300 or above...... GUESS WHAT??? THATS 48 DOLLARS A TANK ;) its got close to 200k and she runs at 2100k rpms at 75+ mph with my K@n intake, pace headers, and exaust...... so a 4 banger is awesome to have but the 6 is nice to have too

    Is that all? With stock exaust, headers, air intake 3" lift 31" stock tires I can easily get 400/tank on winter gas (need gas light comes on around 350-360). When I put the 33" BFG KM2s on I only lose 1MPG.

    But still 300 miles on 16 gallons is only 18.75 MPG. I get 18.5 to 19.5 on winter gas & 23.5 to 24.5 summer gas. The only thing that's going to stop me from geting 450 to 480 miles on a tank this summer is that they charge $.10 to $.15 more a gallon in the Reno/Sparks area than they do in Ferntucky where I work.
