    Just got a 2015 Trail Premium with 5000 miles on it. Love it! I'm only getting 18.4 out of it. My friend has a 2011 and gets 20 out of his.....What are you getting? Now that I have had this for a while I really want the TRD Pro. Has anybody drove both and can chime in on the differences?

    I have a 2015 SR5 4x4 and get 16 to 21. I have a hard time getting that 21 even on the freeway though. I would say its more like 18-19 most of the time. I have 27000 miles on it, with stock suspension, tires, and rims. I also live at sea level.

    I am getting 17.5 with winter blend fuel. It should go up maybe 1.5mpg when the fuel switches over soon.

    Well, I just let my monitor run, so its both city and highway. I do live in a very small town and hardly ever need to really get on it.

    '16 4x4 SR5 Premium. 19-19.8 most tanks that are normal driving. 80-85 mph Interstate Kamakazi runs or pulling a trailer kill it.

    Pleasantly surprised with it. Same power train my last two Tacoma's had (not sure on final drive gearing difference) but it gets a couple mpg better than they did.

    On the way home from the dealer drove for about 30 minutes freeway and 20 in town and I'm getting 19, so hopefully it will get a little better. Still better than the 16 I was getting in the Tacoma

    So far about 18.5 mixed. Honestly, that's great. I never did any better with my Tacomas, or my 1/2 Ton Chevy. Honestly, I bought this vehicle because it was well built, long lasting, good riding, and off road capable. I'd be happy with 15+. I worried about MPG too much with my last few vehicles only to discover the joy of driving something I truly liked mattered more than MPG. Love this truck.

    18.1 mpg after 500 miles. I think I got a boost in efficiency after filling up with 89 octane ~380 miles.

    I hope I get to 19 mpg, but I'm not holding my breath. I travel 60 miles each day with a lot of stop n' go traffic and go thru about 30-40 stoplights.

    Haha can of worms my friend, if you've haven't seen the bazillion threads about Octane check them out. If the ECM is designed to run on 87, running high won't improve anything.

    I even found a video on YouTube of a CEO or COO of an oil company (I think BP?) that said higher octanes are for detonation prevention, not fuel efficiency.

    Octane in a nutshell is a measure of how volatile the fuel is, essentially how much can it take before it combusts. This allows for a more controlled ignition cycle. That's why cars with Turbos and Superchargers need them, to tighten up the combustion of the engine.

    To improve fuel economy, opt for fuels with less Ethanol, and top tier fuels with better detergents in them to help keep your injectors clean.

    Certainly not trying to pick on you just some mythbusting that hopefully saves you money.

    More than anything, this guy right here knows how to keep it in the sweet spot, cause adding tires that are heavier and bigger reduce fuel economy, so he probably kept a light foot and didn't do 80 on the freeway.

    Still averaging about 17ish for me. HOWEVER, I built my adventure trailer very aerodynamic, so more excitedly I'm averaging 15 WITH my trailer hooked up. Now that's something, considering I used to get 9 - 12 pulling a travel trailer.

    I have 1200 miles on my T4R pre and I did try the 93 octane . the MPG did not change. I did notice a slightly less downshift going up grades though. back to 87 now. 18.8 MPG showing .
