    It’s hard being famous. Everyone wants a look at the speeding white Taco.

    I'm getting 19.4-19.8 with a '17 DC Sport. The 1st 2 tanks I was only getting in the low 17's. Driving habits have not changed.

    I get 18-19 in town and 21-22 on the interstate. 2016 TRD Sport 4x4. Bone stock except for soft tonneau on bed.
    Realize that I am now an old man and don't drive like i did my Camaro's or GTO's in the 1970's!

    I've got the same setup as you, also with a manual, and I average 18 to 19mpg. Shifting around 2ish K. But, I only use 91. Not saying that's it, but I'm sure it helps.

    Hmmmm I need a fill up tomorrow anyways. I’ll throw in 93 octane and see if that makes a difference. I was sure hoping I didn’t need it as my last car had to have it and it shows in the bank. Haha.

    I’ve only ever used 87 octane.

    I dunno, it's like maybe $6 (.30 cents X 20 gallons) more per tank?

    Just skip your Starbucks/whatever the day you fill up.

    Skipping Starbucks is asking a lot. Hahahaha.

    But here in Baltimore Maryland it’s about an .60-.80 cents increase. So two Starbucks coffees. Lol

    But either way I’m gonna give it a shot in two tanks and reset my mpg and see what comes of it.

    Dang! that is really sad! I get 19-21 around home and 23 on the highway and I have a 2016 TRD OR MT with BFG tires, everything else stock. And I drive 80 usually on the interstate here in the mountains of NC. LOL!

    I have noticed that the higher octane yields better MPG. The first tank of fuel was supplied by the dealer and if I was a betting man I would bet it was not 93 octane. That tank of fuel I only got 17.4 MPG out of it, the second tank I filled it with 91 octane and I achieved 19.8 MPG. All of the following fill ups have been 91 or better and the the best MPG I have recorded was 20.8. I suppose I will need to fill up on 87 octane again and compare the results. My truck is a completely stock 2017 limited double cab 5’ bed that I drive cautiously with most of its 2200 miles spent on cruise control. I am slightly disappointed with the Tacoma’s gas mileage but it’s better than the 2008 Honda Ridgeline that it replaced.

    Do you know if 93 is ethanol free? If so that’s where your better MPGs are coming from.

    Dead on. The nearest place for me to get it is 40+ miles away or I’d give it a shot to see the difference.
