    The short version of the story is....I sold my 1995 Tacoma x-cab 4WD and have missed it every day since. I had a cap on the back and got about 18 city and 21 highway. I'm now driving a Rav4 and absolutely hate it. Toyota completely lied about the Rav4 gas mileage, and I'm thinking about going back to an older Tacoma. I'm looking at a 2001 same version as described- ex-cab 4WD. My old one and the one I'm looking at are/were 4cyl 2.7. manual 5 spd. I'm wondering if fuel efficiency improved at all in the newer Tacomas. Can anyone please tell me realistically what kind of mileage I can expect to get in this thing? I do a lot of highway driving, and as we all know, gas prices just suck. Thanks!:)

    Do a search for gas mileage threads...there are a lot of them.

    15 to 20 depends on driving conditions. 20 if all Hwy miles, 16 to 18 in town, just keep the the revs 2000rpm and below. This is on a V6 with an auto!

    I have an 01 double cab, V6, 2wd, auto tranny, camper shell and get 17-19 in mixed driving. I'm light on the pedal when starting at the light and usually cruise at 70mph on the highway. However, you're asking about the 4 banger so....
