    I just bought an 07 Tacoma TRD SR5 Sport 4.0 auto.

    I was told that it has a 3in procomp lift (but i looked under the chasis and didnt see any blocks in the rear? I only saw that the front had some new coilovers?)

    It has headers(not sure on the brand yet)
    Stage 2 CAI(not sure on brand yet)
    JET V-Force plus Programmer(not sure how good this thing is just yet)
    33' tires 285/70r/17

    I filled up with 93 octane on a 21 gallon tank and used 16 gallons and had only gone 215 miles which is just over 13mpg????
    Any idea why such bad MPG??

    Thanks for any info you guys can provide.

    I did trade my 2nd GTO in this time for this Tacoma with only 37k miles for an 07. Not to shabby

    Welcome to TW. The reason it dropped is your running a lift and those 33's. Depending on which tire you have, there are some tires that are heavier than others and affect mpg more. Post up some pics of your truck.

    You probably have an add a leaf in the rear if there isn't a block.

    That was my 2nd one. I am being medically retired from the Army and moving back to PA and the Goat doesnt do very well in the now. I can always go back down that road again some other time.

    say what you want about my GTO....It was a beast. Heads/Cam/Headers/Full suspension/3:91s/fully built rear end. Made 450RWHP. So yes it was a GTO

    I ask because it was already installed on the truck when i bought it.

    Are there any programmers out there worth getting?

    So quick to hate on the Goat... you may remember that the original GTO was a Lemans (ugly fuckin car) that was stuffed full of ponies, same concept as the newer ones.

    I know a lot more abot GTO's than I do Tacomas and I know a lot about Tacomas, and by the way the first GTO was a work of art back in 64' and today. It wasn't a Le Mans.
