Iím leasing a new Tacoma next week and was trying to get an idea on the real MPG so I can work the math on my monthly gas budget. What are you guys getting? Also any upgrades you would recommend? Iím going to buy the truck after the lease is up.

2006 4x4 double cab. With the factory butter cutter tires I saw 23 on the highway and 20 in town. Ive now got a leveling kit and 265s all the way around and saw 17 mpg to Kerrville and back last weekend. It will manage close to 19 if you drive like paw paw. Pulling my ranger on a 14' single axle it gets a whopping 11-12. At only 63000 or so miles Id think its not broke in to get good mileage yet

I like the truck and came from about 15 years of 3/4 ton 4x4 diesels

I get about 22 out of mine. I opted out of A/C, power windows, power seats, power steering, navigation, power door locks, and cruise control and it really seems to help with the mileage.

I have an 18 Off Road that I just rolled over 10K, V6, factory tires/wheels. Iím getting right at 20mpg. . Lots of upgrades that are worth it in my opinion. Good site for some really cool Taco stuff it Mesocustoms.com
Heís out of stock most of the time, but he makes everything himself and itís QUALITY stuff.


Soooo, not trying to tell a man his business but....
You sure leasing is the way to go? With the miles and aftermarket parts alone, it may not be a good idea. And then thereís the actual lease. Just my $0.02

my 15 4x4 gets 20 mpg pretty much everywhere, if you want to keep your mileage and power, stay with stock size tires. JMO
