    What are you guys seeing on highway mpg? I'm not sure how accurate trip computer is but I'm only getting 19-20 highway on 30 miles one way traveling 75mph flat roads.

    At 75 mph, 19 is about right. The fuel efficiency in 3rd gens drops drastically over 70 mph.

    This is always a loaded question. Different driving styles, maintenance practices, traffic, etc.

    You might be cruising down the freeway in FL and not achieve as good as others not at sea level due to under inflated tires.

    I'm not one heavy on the pedal. Don't typically use cruise control but keep it pretty steady. I have notice under 60 in stop and go seems to get better mpg. As somebody already stated seems like above 70 mpg drops significantly.

    I love how people get offended when a previously discussed topic get brought up. I’ll add to OPs question.
    2018 dcsb gets 23-26 mpg at the end of the tank driving 65 to 80 max all stock and I’m grateful for buying the 2.7 for that reason. Not to make more people offended... I love challenging myself to get the best possible mpg! Yes I bought a truck and yes my average mpg matters to me and no, I should not have bought a Prius.

    I dont think anyone is upset. But now when you search for this topic you'll have to go through 200 threads with 10 or so posts before you find the more dedicated threads that have 100s of posts. Makes finding the dense threads with a whole bunch of useful information more time consuming and difficult.

    Thus the offer to assist in finding said threads.

    What motor/tranny? I've seen reports and cluster shots of up to 28 on the various mpg threads mentioned above and often 23-24 but 19-20 isn't out of line for 75. Apparently there's also some heuristic programming where the ecu learns how to improve mileage over the first several k miles. Obvious stuff like tire pressure and open windows, go easy on the fun pedal, etc.

    2600 miles. V6 TRD double cab. Rear differential replaced at 2k miles. Transmission feels like it slips at highway speeds.

    You can get rates mpg sometimes. As @ColoradoTJ says, you can put ten different people in identical tacomas and have them drive the same route from point A to point B and you will get ten different mpg. It's all about speed, driving habits, wind, season and countless variables.
    With all that said, you will get between 17-21 average total mpg unless all your driving is in town or all interstate. Then you will get a bit worse or a bit better.
    Plus, these trucks get a bit better after several thousand miles. I got about 19.5 overall mpg with a stock manual trans. I drove it like I stole it from day one. Conversely, I now drive a Tundra 5.7 4WD crew cab and I am getting around 18 mpg lol.
