    I test drove both and went with the 5.7. Mpg ratings wouldn't make much of a difference, and I would rather have the power than not.

    The way I viewed that was if I was doing 75mph on a freeway in the 5.7, the 4.6 would have to work that much harder to maintain that speed thus higher RPM's thus less MPG.

    Actually, I found 4.6 engine quite good. I was originally shopping for a Tacoma when I just for the heck of it test drove a 4.6 Tundra. I was so impressed by how it drove I bought one. After deciding to get a Tundra, I have read a lot of threads on various forums, which convinced me to go with 5.7. But 4.6 is no slouch.
