    My 2007 Tacoma is only getting 20-21 mpg, mostly highway driving. It is an Access Cab W 2.7L eng. and 4 speed automatic tranny. No other performance issues. Any suggestions or similar experience?

    How fast are you driving on the highway and what's the typical engine rpm you see at those speeds? Is it above 3000? The drawback with the 4 speed (vs 5 speed or 6 speed) is 4th gear is usually not tall enough, so the revs are high in the highway.
