    ive got a manual 2.7L, 4cyl, 01' tacoma xtra cab that
    1) has roughly a 15 gallon tank
    2)~300 miles per tank
    3) roughly 20 mpg
    however. I do about 95% of my driving as "urban" aka city driving and I will be the first to admit I love accelerating and drive very aggressively. If you pretend theres an egg under the petal and shift relatively low you can get better mpg's

    IMO, a if MPG is very important, a truck shouldn't be your go to vehicle.

    Case in point, my son drives a Honda Fit for his job as he gets fuel allowance from his job. His weekend car is a 400hp supercharged NSX that guzzles the go juice.

    When I was a worker (now retired) my Tacoma was my daily driver and at around 17 MPG, I was happy. My weekend car was a 7 MPG Mustang.

    Um yeah, I posted a link of a ton of people asking the same question. Anything you want to to know about fuel economy with our trucks can be found on that link. Go to the link.

    Your gas tank holds 21 gallons. Keep in mind that the low fuel light comes on when you have 4 galllons left more or less.

    I bought my 07 Taco(2.7L-5speed, reg cab) this last summer. I've been getting about 19-23 mpg, thats 60% city and 40 highway. Ive noticed that since its been getting colder out, it takes a while for my truck to warm up, and I've been getting a little less economy. All in all I drive pretty easy on the gas.

    21-22 mpg consistantly, with mostly in town driving. A/C runs most of the time. I have only seen 23mpg maybe twice. When I go on long trips with a lot of highway driving, I usually run 70-75 and still avg about the same 21-22. I have a hard time believing anything above 23mpg.
