    It is a truck, not a civic. You want good gas mileage don't buy a truck

    I've got a 2011 Access Cab 4x4 TRD Sport V6 (auto tranny) and average between 18-19 and I'm pretty easy on the gas pedal. Have yet to get over 19 mpg.

    2009 TRD Sport access cab 4wd. I got mid teens city driving and between 19 and 22 on the highway depending on how I was driving. Dropped off some since I got bigger more aggressive tires. Don't really pay much attention to it. As mentioned, it is a truck. Most trucks in general are gonna be in the same ball park for the most part. Unless you're getting a 4 cyl or something.

    I regularly got 18mpg before lift and tires, after I get 14.5. I have been in the 19-20mpg range a couple times. 1 time with the lift and tires, all freeway and 75mph= 19.2mpg! I was amazed, but the city driving with 33's kills the mileage. It is a double cab 4x4.

    I bought an 05 access cab 4x4 4 cylinder new and until I got rid of the garbage tires it came with I got 23-24 mpg on the highway. All stock with nothing but an AFE drop in filter and 265/70/16 (stock TRD size) General grabber AT2's and it got 21 mpg. That's about 75 percent highway. I bought another 05 a few months ago after selling that truck. "new" truck is a bone stock double cab TRD 4x4/auto and I have yet to see 20mpg with it. But I'll tell you I would never go back to a 4 cylinder after driving this for a while. After driving my 5.0 mustang all summer it was almost torture driving that truck. I no longer have to plan ahead and downshift 2 gears to hope to pass someone on a 2 lane road. Just put your foot down. It's still nowhere as quick as the mustang, but it's not gutless.

    You won't get good gas mileage EVEN for a full size truck.

    Worst mileage of any vehicle I've bothered to own manufactured after 1985.

    Same as my 4x4 tahoe with a slipping transmission.

    But hey, ya get what ya pay for. Chevy is going 30-50 grand now a days.

    My old mans F150 4.6 6 speed 2WD gets 20% better highway mileage, with big BFG's on the stock rims.
    My 2011 Taco is no better than my previous 318 4X4 Dakota, power or mileage.
    Pretty Sad

    4WD shift issues (4th trip to the dearler, still no luck), trans shift issues(fixed), rusty bumper(replaced), broken diff(REPLACED TWICE!!), faulty CD player(replaced), grabbyass brakes(fixed). Seemingly unfixable leaf spring sqeek, Leaking trans cooler line (fixed), Rearview mirror falling off(fixed), Wiper motor going, Blower motor squeek(fixed)........ Call me a troll, but that's my truck after 9 months, it's a lease, so I don't care how long Toyota's may or may not last, because I'm sick of the poor quality.
    Did I mention my nearly trouble-free 09 Taco was my all time favorite? Tacomas are not all created equal...
