670 miles and still loving the hell out of this truck. Second tank I got 17.8 MPG (5.7Litre) mix of city and hwy driving.

Pulled my 20 Grady this weekend. It weighs ~5000lbs. The tundra handled it like a dream. I came from a F-250 Diesel and the Tundra seems to get the load moving quicker due to the turbo lag with the diesel. I was totally impressed.

Eveything is perfect with this truck. And man oh man does the stereo crank!

Sound like a very satisfied customer. You might not want to tow a whole lot for the first couple thousand miles due to break in period. Nice to here a reference from an ex diesel owner.:tu:

Yeah, you shouldn't tow anything until you have 500 miles or more on the truck. According to owner's manual.

I have 650 miles and just did some local towing to the boat ramp no speeds above 55 mph. The truck is awesome. I was impressed with its load handling ability. Before I had the 250 I had a 150 and no comparison there...the Ford 5.4 litr "worked" to pull the load...did fine, but nothing like the Tundra...then again the 5.4 litre was a 97...10 yrs in technology is a good thing.
