    I recently made a hwy trip in my 09 tacoma access cab and i calculated i made about 17 mpg but i probably averaged about 80 mph does this sound right to anybody. I removed the charcoal air filter and installed an afe pro dry s filter.

    2.7L I4 or the 4.0L V6? If it is the 4 cylinder that seems a little low.

    It is posted in the 4 cyl sections so assuming the subforum was chosen correctly, what is your driving style? Did you havethe truck loaded or hauling anything. That number is WAY low but some people say they see major improvements as the truck ages

    Personally, It sounds normal for 80 mph. Its a truck, and wind resistance increases significantly above 60 mph.

    My 2.7 4x4 gets 20-21 mpg in mixed driving. 17 is supposed to be the lowest mileage for a 2.7. 17city, 22 hwy are the EPA ratings.

    My Taco is a 2WD, at 75-80 MPH I get about 24-26 MPG. I think a 4x4 2.7L should be getting above 20 MPG.

    It will unless you are just doing city driving. Then you will get about 18 mpg. I drive about 60% hwy and average 20-21. The 4x4s have lower gearing and extra weight so there is a mpg penalty.

    You also have to make sure that you completely fill up the tank when you get fuel.
