I am still getting around 300 miles per tank, but the tank is bigger in the '05. I have already put around 10 tanks of gas through this thing, and I still haven't figured the gas mileage.

Gas mileage isn't a huge issue for me, I'd rather have performance, and if that means I have to buy more gas, so be it....

I've had 5 tanks so far and I'm averaging about 21 mpg. I am on the highway though for probably 50% of my driving. Funny thing though. I ran 87 octane the first two tanks and 91 the last three and noticed a big difference in engine noise and performance. The new 4 liter likes the good stuff. Gas milage is about the same though.

check www.fueleconomy.gov . They list all the specs on every vehicle on the market pertaining to mpg. I did notice they have the 05 Tacoma on there, so check that out. Just click Find and Compare Cars.

Quoting a recent Car and Driver review:

"The Tacoma averaged 18 mpg over 3964 miles, much of it with the trans lazy-shifted from fourth to sixth, where the engine pulls an easy 2600 rpm at 75 mph."

18-19mpg. This has been consistent for the first 1400 miles. It is around 300 miles per tank.
How big's the tank? Also I see you have the double cab, prolly take a couple MPG's off cause of that.

Marc M, yes I was talking to you!
