    I changed at 3K miles engine oil and the diff gear oil rear. reason is I was going to the warmer regions in january 2017.. so I did this the end of dec 2016 before the 4K mile trip.

    engine oil @3k miles was perfect when changed . checked oil 2 days ago exactly on the full mark clean as new with a little over 5K miles on the engine oil..

    it is weird on these toyota vehicles the rear diff oil needs more changing than the engine oil !!!..

    but the oil changing did help on MPG...

    Yeah, it seems like my 4R also gets better gas mileage on hwy stop n' go traffic vs 45Mph roads with a lot of stop lights and stop signs...probably because Of how I accelerate berween the 2 scenarios.

    Getting 17.6 mpg in mixed driving. I have a 2016 Trail premium with TRD wheels and Nitto Ridge grapplers with the stock size tire. If I drive like an old lady I can squeeze a few mpg out of it. Longer trips I have been able to get close to 19mpg.

    I use shell gas 87 most of the time and I get 17-18 MPG.. when I use citgo gas I get 18-19 MPG .. so my guess is citgo has less alcohol in the gas .. down in SW florida I was getting 20 MPG..

    It sounds like you got used to driving the T4R quickly. What did you drive before this?

    Driving the Jeep probably helped. You adopted your driving quickly.

    At 1K miles, I was @ ~18mpg. I had a difficult time...switched from a car with twin turbos.

    17 TRD Off Road...getting 19 driving the mountain roads and about 22 on highway. Only 1200 miles on it right now, but I think that's pretty decent mileage for a 4x4 SUV. My 12 Tacoma PreRunner gets about 21 on average so when compared not much difference.

    well I have 3 tank fills of citgo 87 gas and I am close to 20 MPG with mixed driving ..

    before I would use shell then citgo with citgo the MPG increased by 1 plus MPG 17-18 range to 18-19 mpg..

    with pure citgo the MPG is almost 20 ... 19.7MPG so I will keep using citgo ..

    :canada:Took a Sunday afternoon drive in the B.C. coast range yesterday, from Agassiz at 55'elevation we climbed up the Fraser River Canyon to Spences Bridge, across on the twisties to Merritt for lunch, back down on the 4 and 5 lane Coquihalla to Hope, and then home again. Highest elevation reached was 4080' (1244 metres). We gassed today at the same station we filled at the morning we left, and we made a very comfortable 19.84 mpg US (8.44 kpl). I'm happy! - Cheers, Ted

    I'm at just over 5500 miles on my '17 TRD Off Road Premium and the computer says 17.8 mpg. Haven't bothered calculating it myself.

    I keep reading contradicting things. I have a 2017 SR5 Premium and haven’t been able to figure out how to get my info display average mpg to reset. Even after fill ups. Still shows the average from day one. Are you able to measure mpg by tank? Or even trip? Sorry if I’ve missed the simple tricks. Thanks!

    when you have the display showing the mpg press and hold the display button and it will reset back to zero and start all over again. took me a while to figure it out also.....:annoyed:
