I had a 2006 2X4 tacoma access cab 2.7L, I averaged about 400 miles to the tank, about 21 mpg, but my demand for power add off road made the mpg number not as high as they could be, so I just purchased 2009 tacoma 4.0L V6 5 speed auto double cab. First tank 20.8 mpg, second tank the same, but I drove 60 miles on mountain road, so I think things are getting better as it's loosing up.

I'm looking to buy a Taco 4x4 v6. extended cab. I'm leaning for a 6 speed manual, does the manual make for better gas mileage?
#325 of 367 What is MPG range of 4WD Tacos in 2WD mode?
Oct 25, 2008 (11:10 am)
I saw a glossy at a dealership that posted 2 sets of ranges for a 4WD 4 cylinder Tacoma. The set in large type said 17/22. In smaller type below it said 20/26. While there was no clear explanation in the brochure, the dealer maintained the 20/26 range was what I could expect if I were operating the truck in 2WD mode. This goes against my common sense and past experience with other 4WD trucks. I expect that milleage is compromised even if 4WD is not engaged - there is additional weight and additional internal and external friction. But maybe Toyota has worked a miracle here. Can people with a 4 cylinder 4WD please chime in - what milleage range do you see when in 2WD and what is it in 4WD? Thanks!

Well I added a soft tonneau and 70k mile hwy tires Continental Cross contact. I also had the front wheel bearings changed due to signs of wear. ( off roading ) Now after 3 tanks I get 20.25 mpg avg. If i could find a Gas Station that sold Gas that was not Enriched ( watered down) with ethonol. I might see 22 MPG avg. I am also building an HHO cell with an EEFE ( a computer to adjust the O2 sensor readings) and PWM (it makes the conversion of HHO more effecient). A guy on youtube has an '06 prerunner with the 4.0l and has seen a 18% increase in millage with the system running. Anyone else messing with HHO? here is a website to check out HHO http://alt-nrg.org/index.html
