2007 Tundra 4.7 50,089 miles

Looking to improve fuel mileages? Looking into cold air intake? Any ideas?



Thanks.

Might as well save the money and wait for repairs.

Maybe a new air filter, but no (real) need for a CAI.

The only way you'll improve you mileage with mods is from having less weight in your wallet to haul around. :eek:
A lighter right foot gets the best results. :tu:

You bought a 4.7 that should be enough gas mileage. Just save your money and enjoy your truck. You will not get your money back out of any MPG saving product.

I have added black step bars, 20% tint all around, X-liner (soon),
Stainless steel gear shift, going to add K&N filter. Looking into getting exhaust systems. I have a shop here in town that bents the pipes and you just have to buy the pipes.

Barney must have had a good day today, because normally he would have told you to search. This question has come up many, many times. You need a really, really light foot to get anything approaching decent mileage. With a full tank of gas and a passenger or two, you're at 3 tons. That takes juice to move

in a nutshell you can expect
14-15 in traffic.
17 or so on a long run 75-80 mph.
A tad over 20 on a long run if you STICK to 65 all the way on cruise.

I had intake and exhaust on my last truck. It sounded like a beast but didn't do any better for a mileage. I also beat on it harder when I realized how awesome it sounded. On this truck, I have ranged from 18.7 mpg all highway with the cruise set at 63-64 mph to high 16s with lead-footed highway driving at over 75. And under 16 mph highway if I drive it like I stole it and cruise at over 85. The 18.7 mpg didn't cost a thing, and I didn't have to wait several months or a couple years for the fuel savings to pay for the mod before I started seeing actual money come back into my pocket.

Of course I only got it once because I only drove the truck like that once. I have a 5.7. Blowing by sports sedans like they aren't moving in a 6000 pound 4x4 crew cab is way too much fun for me to be puttering trying to turn horrible fuel mileage into only really bad fuel mileage.

Well, welcome to the forum first of all! Secondly, it's nothing if there aren't any pics!

Congrats on the buy and early mods and good luck on future ones.

Oh and as a reminder, the easiest way to get help here is to send a case of beer to each forum member's address. Honestly, we all had to do it, it's your turn now...
