    So I have been considering a new truck for the past month. My options are an 07-08 Chevy Silverado, or an 07-08 Toyota Tacoma. What I would like to know is what type of gas mileage the V6 6speed manual drivers are getting out of there trucks. And what body style your truck is too.

    Thanks, Dan

    Hmm? so you take first gear up to 15 mph then shift it into third?

    Got a 4x4 v6 dc and i get about 17. Never got over 19 and have gotten as low as 14.

    Wow that was a good response. Any body see any difference in power loss or gas mileage with a double cab long bed?
