    My last fill-up I was getting 14L/100km
    In the summer I was getting 12L/100km on avg.

    Mostly highway between 110 & 130 km/h.

    New plugs/filters/oil in December. You've really got to baby the throttle to get any kind of decent mileage out of these 4.0L's.

    Well, you`ve got a magic Tacoma. Because mine uses 14L per 100k`s at 110kmh. No wind no grade warmed up. At 130, 17LHK. either that or mines a turd.

    My Tacoma is new with 677 kms. City driving, using 4x4 on and off (Winter), so considering all that, according to Gas Cubby I get....

    Average KM/l= 5.24
    Maximum KM/L= 5.84
    Minimum KM/L= 4.65
    Cost per fill up $70.97
    Total Liters 129.24
    Total Kms 677
    Cost per km $0.21
    cost per liter $1.10
    liters per fill up 64.62
    Kms per fill up 338.50

    19.1 Liters per 100kms or 12.3 MPG

    = Gas Whore :eek: Hope it gets better

    FWIW - The mileage rating for the 2010 Tacoma in Canada is lower than for the 2005 - 09. Not sure why, but it`s rated about 2% lower.

    Really? With 265x75R16 I get 550kms. 3/4 highway driving and HARD city driving with no warm up.

    Are you factoring in larger tire size and the discrepancy with the odometer?

    I know how it is, I have a Borla and the feeling is very mutual.

    With those tires you're probably closer to 450km per tank.

    I have to question this claim of 550kms per tank, as my truck is driven 90% highway, by my wife, no warmup. And has never hit 500kms on a 70 liter fill. She drives 95 - 110 kph.

    I'll take a picture of the odometer next time. Every fill up I trip it.
    I also have an Airaid shortram intake and a borla cat-back exhaust. Not sure if they make much of a difference. I'm also religious about changing my oil every 5000kms with synthetic. Driving 100-110km/h really helps too.

    Sorry for the size, but I can get another 25kms easy before I really start to sweat it. And that again, was with some HARD driving. Not all of it, but easily a ¼.
