    Confused yet?

    I am asking that supercharged Tacoma's rename the "car name" field on fuelly and put the word supercharged in there somewhere. I would like to see the MPG ratings for superchargers, I am considering putting one in soon, and want to know the loss in mpg if any.

    It would simply make it easier to search the list of tacoma's since fuelly doesn't have that sort option.

    Thanks!

    ETA: Lets not turn this into a debate of "If you are worried about this, don't do that".

    It's a simple request so I can review supercharged Tacoma's and see what mpg they get cruising, wheeling, or towing. I already know the gains, and the cost to install. I want to see the long term effects.

    Superchargers can increase mpg's when your cruising but there's a very drastic dive if you put your foot into it. That being said, why would you buy a supercharger if you're not going to use all the power? It would take a very very long time for a supercharger to pay itself off by increased MPG's.

    From the 1 lucky find in fuelly, your statement would be correct. I would like to see a general average tho.

    Not worried about mpg loss at all, just trying to do a little research. I'd rather know now, than be irritated later. Impulse buying can be a bad thing.

    This is true. If you drive normal it won't really change much. I have been getting about 17mpg with my 3.4 supercharged. It has a urd pulley so I get 9-9.5 lbs of boost. It's hard to not want to mash the gas down though lol so if you are worried about gas I'd not get one.

    just get it... you'll love the power so much you wont really care about the MPG's. I for sure didnt :D

    Seriously though...My mellow driving mpg might've gone up, but I couldn't keep my foot off the gas, so I was honestly getting like 12 with 33's in a 6 speed manual...Have no basis for comparison to a stock 6 speed as I had the charger installed before picking it up. I can however say that the mpg on my stock '10 auto is around 17-19 with the same wheel setup, not sure if that really helps though as the transmission ratios are different...

    One more thing to consider is that once you install it and reflash the ecu, you cant go back to stock again...seems stupid, but well, we are talking about toyota here...

    I'm always interested when people start talking about MPG. Why are we worried about it anyway? It's because higher MPG cost less money. More expensive fuel like the premium required for a SC kills any value in higher MPG.

    My friend is always bragging about how his turbo diesel dodge has the same mileage as my Tacoma. I have to keep reminding him that he is paying 20% more per gallon for diesel.

    Put in a SC to boost power and fun factor but expect your cost will go up significantly and your truck will probably wear out sooner due to increased stress on the driveline. For the record, I would pay the $4000 to put one in my truck in a minute if I didn't have to go to premium fuel.
