    Still on my first, "free" 38 gallon fill up from the dealer. SR5 with TRD Michellin 275/65r18. Max distance started at 601 Miles but I think I'll be lucky to crack 500. I didn't buy the Tundra for its fuel efficiency but I am trying to take it easy on the pedal.

    Love the truck and I can't wait for my next mod, which is going to be a full pre-wire for two new amps and subwoofer. Might actually do a full Clazzio leather install while the seats are out for the pre-wire

    Driving across the country I got 17.5 to 18.5 on the highways. The fuel mileage got worse the higher in elevation I got. (Virginia to Wyoming)

    Most 1/2 tons get better mileage than the Tundra.

    I notice that at 70-71mph, the tach seems to be like 1800rpm which I was surprised it wasn't higher.

    I guess I can't complain about the 15mpg my 4.7 gets with a fully loaded truck in the mountains. Only time I ever saw 17+ was when it was new...when the lumber rack went on I lost almost 2mpg!
