If you're never going over hills pulling a load, I could see a gasser though mileage will surely be single digits. Pulling through turnagain, I'd definately want a diesel.

If you plan on tripping the 2500, let me know.

Interesting hearing about the Tundra's mileage. I've looked at them a few times but know a couple of local guys who couldn't get better than 6-7 mpg out of theirs around town...not towing anything.

Are they running lift kits with big mudders and driving like John force? There's no way a stock Tundra or even one with a leveling kit and moderate tires should get that bad of mileage. I get twice that mileage on my 08 with a little over 100K

No, both are older guys, mid 60's or so. Both traded theirs for Chevys...

Personally, I'd like to have a Taco 4 door with an extra long bed, to fit my atv and 7ft ramps...

I concur, sounds like somebody is siphoning their gas tanks.

In my 3.0 slo pre-taco yota truck in the winter running in 4wd warming the truck up for 15-30 minutes in the morning I was getting 12-13 mpg city driving.

I haven't towed a thing, but my buddy tows a 5th wheel with his. Don't know the mileage, but he says it's got plenty of power. Brakes are his only concern since he's technically overloaded.

I've got 15k on a 2017 TRD. Mine has the little 26 gallon tank, but only because I got the bench seat. If you get the bucket seats, you get the 38 gallon now, along with other upgrades. I wanted the 6 passenger seating, so went with the bench.



I get 15-16 mpg mixed. I've seen 8-13 mpg in the city. On flat open road, I've seen 19+ mpg.

My buddy's Taco doesn't do much better. Neither does another's Chevy with 5.3 liter and cylinder deactivation. He gets 16-17 mpg doing a similar commute.

I think all manufacturers are following the SAE towing standard now, but for awhile Toyota was the only one in compliance with the Tundra. RAM said that they were waiting for Ford and GM to follow it, but ended up adopting it before them. Ford and GM had some lame excuse, even though they helped create the standard.

Towing our boat with the Dodge was awesome, and I expect it approached the 12K mark once or twice. But that had as much to do with the trailer and its brakes as anything. Only time I ever didn't love the Dodge for towing was towing a 30 foot flatbed with a track rig and the toyota and a wheeler and two trailers, and the bed loaded over the rails with camping stuff headed to moose camp. I hate to think what that load weighed.

Not having a boat, and having lightened the load for the annual moose tardfest has me thinking I could ditch the dodge, and just deal with the heavy trailer once a year.

I should start a new thread... Nice rig Nail!


I have an 07 Tundra and with camper on I get 12. Without I get 15. My payment each month is 0 so the give a fucks are low. Add the boat with the camper and I drink coors light for the weekend instead of the good stuff.

Lifes choices....grin
