    I know these Tundras are pretty thirsty, but lets share some MPG readings and what you have done to improve yours. Mine says an average of 14.8, I have a tonneau cover and a drop in K&N air filter. Not the best but hoping for some help in improving MPGs, I love my truck but anything to improve it would be nice.

    Ya, mine's not great. Just check my Fuelly badge in my sig, but then again I use it as a truck and haul stuff almost on the daily plus tow too so that drags down MPGs

    I've kept track of my mileage since I purchased it new - all hand calculated. Check out fuelly badge below for details. I fount a light foot and staying under 60 mph helps. Last 10 fill ups averaged 17.3.

    Was around 16.5 but up to 17.8 now but I'm just starting to check it closely, I ditched the Atturo TrailBlade MT going to the Michelin LTX AT-2 and I think the combination of less weight and a lower rolling resistance did it. My drive is about 50 / 50 highway and twisty country roads with some city in there.

    LS7 motors are my favorite. When I had my GTO it was a 6.0L V8 and using the instant MPG, when I would hammer it it would literally tell me 3-4mpg.

    I had it up to 15.1 but recently I've fallen to a 14.6.. Starting to get on it every now and then, but about 50/50 hw and city driving.. I go a couple miles through town to the gym so on a 45mph zone so that takes it down a little

    I had a calculated 18.4 on the drive to Venice Louisiana yesterday. Mostly 55-65 mph with little turns or elevations changes three people in the truck and not a lot of stops.

    It was hands down my favorite vehicle, you can't argue with a stock 400hp/400tq. I could easily pull 16mpg too. Keep my foot out and stay shifting under 2k. It had such good low range I would drive 2/4/6 shift pattern. I have a buddy building his for twin turbos and before his cam he dynoed at 505hp/495tq to the wheels.

    When I had my Camaro, I secretly loved the GTO! Such a sexy car all the way around!

    If I ever do a muscle car again I'm getting another GTO or a trans am. my GTO was an 05 and I sold it with only 40k miles so I babied it way too much. I got lucky though and sold it for way more than I paid for it

    My trans Am gets 21 mpg on the highway :) its a 5.7 LS1. You guys have to understand when you compare your trucks that elevation has alot to do with MPG aswell as temperature. So dont assume a stock truck on the east coast and in the Rockies will be the same with the same driver.
