    I'll go first.

    Worst thing about having a Tundra is not being able to skip work and telling your boss that your truck broke down. Not believable.

    Hah, so true but if we're honest with ourselves, we don't buy big trucks because of the fuel economy! I average about 14-16 with my 4.6L.

    Funny, I have the double cab and we always take my truck out to lunch at the office.

    Your fuel mileage sucks. I ran a supercharged Tundra aggressively and got over 14.

    Just a few, more to come
    And? Different driving conditions, perhaps different builds lifts/tires/load, etc can all effect it a lot. My average is low because:
    I'm lifted 3" on heavy 35" MT tires, and a plate bumper on the front
    I'm heavy on the gas pedal
    I drive 80%+ around town. It's winter and the cold temp makes warm-up longer
    I'm usually hauling something in the truck, or towing 3000-8000lbs

    I don't care it's low because:
    I choose to drive like an A$$
    I NEED the truck for hauling stuff and towing. I use it for work daily
    I hate stock, so I'll deal with the MPG suck of the lift and tires.

    Shit, I get 8 tops. WOT or no throttle! Also averaging 110 on the autobahn kinda kills it....

    You're the only one whom it seems to bug. Should have figured by now that the top 2 reasons why people join this site is either for 1) What size tires will fit on my ____ and 2) which lift would work best.

    35's all day and fuck it, long travel.
