Ave about 17.5 mpg spirited driving mostly down the country hwy's. Not the 20+mpg i was hoping to get! maybe i need to get more than 2500 miles on it for complete break in too help my mpg increase? The weather around here isn't helping my mileage any either.

05 DBL Cab LB V6 auto A.R.E. cap 18K miles. 15.6 mixed driving. I did a straight hywy trip once where I got a tad under 17mpg. I run Sunoco 89. Sometimes 91. When I see posts where ppl claim 20-22 mpg I gotta wonder if they're using a calculator or a divining rod.:)

I get any where from 16 mpg to 19 mpg in my 4X4 Double Cab 6 speed. I usually average about 17.5 mpg.

Check out : ScanGaugeII - Scan Tool + Digital Gauges + Trip Computers Most people check their mileage "Tank to Tank". That's what I have done for years. What other convenient way do you have? Now you can check your MPG for a 10 mile trip to the market. You don't have to wait for a fill up to find out how you are doing.

I am NOT selling this product. I just bought one a week ago and I am very impressed. Check it out and YOU decide. TacoGuy

Guess I am not 'most people'; I have never used that highly inaccurate method! For those of us who do the math, if you really want to be accurate -- use the rolling 3-tank average. Simply average your last three fill-ups. It's easy and it virtually eliminates the variations in topping off the tank.

Not knocking the Scan Gauge; imo, Tacomas should come standard with something like that. My 12-year-old Jeep has a trip computer, for pete's sake. Very handy (and accurate) for continuous or instant fuel usage, as well as miles-to-empty.

I got a SG2 last Friday and made my first trip with it this week. i averaged 21.2 using the SG2 to keep me mindful of my right foot.....
