    Alright...I've gone through four tankfuls so far. I've got a high of 25.86mpg and a low of 25.07mpg. My overall average so far is 25.43mpg.
    These are the particulars...
    75% city, 25% hwy, (I'm on summer vacation, so my driving is basically beer runs to the store).
    PSI kept at 36lbs.
    No weight in back if not needed
    Driving like a freakin' grandma:laugh:

    So far I'm very pleased. I'll be taking the Taco on a road trip to Houston next month to catch a few Cubs games with my son:bananadance:, so I'll be able to get a good solid highway reading then.

    Well just crossed 35,000 miles in my 2006 4cyl. 4wd access cab Tacoma and had my best tank yet at 25 miles per gallon. Pretty happy with that.

    V6 here with 15000 and just recently got 20.5 with a 60 mile one way trip to work. Have been working out of town for the past month and been keeping logs on mileage and seems to get better with 89 than 93 octane?

    I've noticed consistantly better gas mileage when i use 89. it seems to work better than 87 or 91 and above. Considering its only 10 cents more than the cheap stuff i dont have the slightest problem putting it in my truck
