    i dont believe this for a minute. This must be your driver information center. so you get 16.9, which i believe.

    I don't pay attention to our lie-o-meters but can't resist the chance to hit reset after getting gas in the mountains and coasting down for mile after mile. It takes a long time to average those 99.9mpg into what I really get.

    That also provides an opportunity to say "See Honey, my mpg's aren't bad at all!"

    do it by hand with gallons vs miles. if you've gotten bigger tires then yours is inaccurate.

    Welcome to the real world of 4Runner mpg's. If it's any consolation I think you're pretty close to what the window sticker states as city driving mpg's.

    I'm not too sad about it lol I actually get a little better gas mileage than my Audi TT I had so it's all good. I wouldn't trade my Runner for anything.

    With my 255/75/17s, my hand calculations actually match my console +/- .2 I'm right around 16.5 on a very regular basis. I stopped paying attention months ago though, except that my light comes on RIGHT when my lie-o-meter hits 0 and that's usually about 19-19.5 gallons to fill her up.
