    Just going to try to see what TW is getting for gas mileage.

    My ride:
    2001 Toyota Tacoma 4x4
    3.4 V6 Auto
    Extended Cab
    3" Suspension Lift
    Toyo M/T

    I get about 14 in town, and anywhere from 17-20 on the freeway. My Flowmaster helped a bit (noticed about 1mpg in town and 2 on freeway)

    18-19 avg (combined). I can get close to 20 on long 2 lane road trips staying around 65-70. It's the 80-85 on the interstates that kill mine.

    How accurate are all your mileage readings? How is everyone doing this?

    I do mine by setting the trip on my odometer when I need to get gas. Then the next time I need gas, I take the mileage and divide by gallons of fuel used. Or punch in mpg calculator in google.

    Engine barely gets a chance to get completely warmed up and achieve peak efficiency in the 1.4 miles you drive to work, mpg will suffer as will exhaust components do to moisture build up. The good news is you're in a warmer climate.
