#233 of 367 2007 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab Off-Road 4x4 MPG
Feb 03, 2007 (12:13 pm)
I've had my 2007 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab Off-Road 4x4 Automatic for about 3.5 months (about 6500 miles). The truck is great, but we are disappointed with the MPG. Over the past months we've only gotten between 16 and 18 mpg regardless of the driving (some rural highway driving; some urban driving; regular gas). It's rated at 21 highway and 18 city but has only gotten 19mpg once. It seems to do better if we drive 55-60mph on rural highways but even then it only gets 18 mpg. Perhaps it will do better in the summer

I have a '01 dbl cab V6 and I'm getting 13 to 14 mpg on good days and average 10 to 11 mpg. The dealer says that everything checks out on the computer and no misfiring cylinders but I'm very disappointed. When it was new I would 16 to 18 city and 20 to 22 highway. On the highway if I'm lucky I'll get 15. No one seems to know what the problem is but my transmission seems to shift alot and going up the slightest incline it will go into passing gear and stay there until i back off of the gas. If anyone has any suggestions or the same problem and how they fixed it please let me know.

I have a 2006 TRD Sport Dbl Cab 4x4. Most of my highway miles have been pulling a 3 seat watercraft plus all of the necessary gear. I get just over 17. When I am not pulling the trailer, the best I have ever seen is 19. That is going just over 70mph. I wish it was a little better but it isn't important enough to drive below the speed limit.

I thought I would post a follow up since the truck (O5 TRD OR, extended cab, 4WD, 6 speed manual) now has 27k on it. If I drive 60 I can get 20 MPG or very close - unfortunately where I live I rarely cruise at 60. If I drive with freeway traffic here, (70 to 80) or around town (mixed stop and go with short freeway jaunts) I get around 17 MPG.

I've had my 2006 Tacoma V6 with offroad TRD package for about 3 weeks now, have used one full tank and MPG was about 21 miles per gallon. I did about half off road in the mountains of So Cal, so I used 4x4 some of the time. I also did some mountain roads, freeway and city.
I have no complaints about the truck, no tire problems, engine is smooth and powerful. I suspect my MPG is similar to what I have read, however a bit lower due to the off roading. I was also able to get a $1000 rebate which was nice. My Tacoma is a 2006, with V6 Access cab 4X4, TRD offroad, floor mats, towing package, Total $25,266 "Invoice", with delaer costs $26,348, plus tax, doc, DMV and tire fee I paid $27,515 out the door. I had shopped about 10 dealers till I found one that had the trucks in stock and did not play games with prices. Email me if you want the dealer name and sales person info.
#238 of 367 Gas Mileage - 1999 Tacoma 4x2, 4cyl, 5spd
Feb 19, 2007 (9:14 pm)
I've had the truck since 2002, it currently has 83k on the odo. Have never gotten less than 20 mpg and average 28. Best mileage on a round trip was 35 mpg. I drive it easy and have always wondered why there wasn't more demand for the 4x2/4cyl/manual transmission versions. The difference in gas consumption is dramatic. I had given up hoping to find a used one when I stumbled onto this truck.

#241 of 367 Anyone with a 4 cycle 4x4 5 spd MT?
Apr 05, 2007 (2:50 pm)
I am wondering if anyone has experience with a 4x4 with the 4 cycle with a MT set up? I would like to know what gas mileage has been? I plan on keeping my civic for normal driving back to work but I am looking into a 4x4 without a V-6.

I've run through my second tank of gas now (well, third, but I didn't count the first dealer fill up). The following mpg are incredibly disappointing: 19.64 and 19.98. Somebody told me that the stringent CA emissions actually lower mpg, but I have nothing to support that. My sister's '06 V6 auto double cab is getting 21.8 (highway mpg). She's in Georgia. I just don't understand.
This is the third Toyota pick-up I've owned. The 1997 Tacoma w/200k miles that I trade for this '07 got 3 more mpg...with a filthy air filter and running on its last wheel! Something must be wrong, yes?
Anybody else in California finding this to be true or is my truck broken?
