    2015 tundra flex fuel 5.7
    I have a 2015 Tundra 4x4 5.7 flex fuel with 4,500 mileage. Purchased in July 2015 Houston Texas

    I'm only getting 297 for full tank. krogers fuel highest grade.

    Is something wrong or the wrong gas?

    I fuel up at around 1/4 quarter tank at 237 miles.
    My fuel ups usually display around 300 miles...this is calculated based on your driving patterns.

    That calculates out to about 11.25 MPG, which does seem a bit on the low side. I averaged right around 14 before my lift and big tires (now around 13.5). First the obvious, are you using 4WD very often if at all? lots of short trips?

    I should also mention that if you are using premium on an otherwise stock truck, you are effectively throwing away the monetary equivalent of 2-3 MPG. The factory tune does not take advantage of the additional octane.

    No 4wd. I will start using lower grade of gas.
