Lets do a data base thread on what kind of fuel mileage you are getting in your truck.

Post your trucks year, motor and any mods with the fuel mileage...minimum commentary.

My 2012 Tundra with the 5.7L, Icon suspension that lifts it about 2" and 33" Toyo's is getting 13.6 all around [mostly city] and gets 15 on the highway averaging 75 mph.
F250 6.4 diesel ,stock size tires, it's programed,but don't know which one. Had a great mechanic work on it. I get 18 to 19 in town. Freeway up to 26.

Original owner
Michelin LTX M/S (@40 psi)
Bone stock

Cruise set at 5 over (~75 mph)

Best = 21.6 mpg ...AL to PA unloaded with 10-15mph Southerly tailwind.

Worst = 15ish mpg ... Houston to Del Rio fully loaded (not towing anything) for a hunt into strong headwind.

Longest round trip = 19.6 mpg ...PA to ID to PA. Loaded up for Elk hunt. Mpg was better coming back East than heading out West (Rockies are taller than the Appalachians). Winds mostly out of the West/NW. Was really digging the 80 mph speed limits out there and stayed at my +5 rule of thumb.

Average = 19 mpg cruising interstate.

This ^^^ is what the sticker said it should get and pretty much holds true.

As you can see...can vary quite a bit depending on headwind/tailwind and uphill or downhill.

2014 Tacoma 4.0 v6 crew cab with 6' bed
Roof rack and 31x10.5 tires

I rarely see better than 17 mpg. Most if my driving is 4wd on gravel roads though. I lost at least 1 mpg with the roof rack, I hate the noise it causes and it makes me look like an overlander but I really like the extra cargo capacity.
