    Appreciate if you could post the kind of mileage you are getting with the type of driving you are doing.


    1) Daily driving, commuter empty
    2) loaded down - let us know how close to the payload rating
    3) towing - how much weight you are towing.


    Please tell us if you are also driving in colder weather Northern US or Canada or warmer climates.

    It would also be nice to know how many gallons or liters it takes to fill up from "E". I think the new tank is 32 gallons, how much do we actually get to use?

    1. Good thread to start, seems like there is no dedicated discussion whatsoever over fuel economy. 2022’s chime in.

    Probably also worth noting where the gas is ethanol blend or not.

    You can use all 32 gallons of it. Just because the gauge reads empty doesn’t make the gas unavailable.

    I averaged 19mpg driving from Roseburg Oregon to Bend Oregon last weekend. Temps in 30s and 40's. This included about 50 miles of freeway at 75 mph and then driving over the cascades 50-60mph with elevation gain and curves, had to pop it in 4wd for a mile or two due to snow. Not bad IMO.

    Full tank. DC TRD OR

    I hear ya. Just curious more than anything. I think Gen 2.5 you still have a ton of fuel left after hitting "E" so I was curious about gen 3.

    My fuel light comes on when I still have 6 gallons of a 26 gallon tank left. Wouldn’t surprise me if the GEN three pick ups are the same.

    Ive found after owning many Toyotas and Lexus vehicles that the safety margin of fuel remaining when the low fuel light is more indicative of the vehicle in question. The wife’s Lexus only has like 2 gallons left when the light comes on. In the Tundra it’s more like 6 gallons. But the Tundra is capable of getting 5-6 mpg towing a trailer which means that I might only have 30 miles until I’m completely out of fuel where as with the Lexus 2 gallons will get me 60 miles til I’m out.

    That makes total sense regarding the towing. Thanks, I never thought of that.

    19mpg = about 12.4 liters used every 100kms.

    Is that what the computer said or after doing the math at the pump?

    According to the computer on my limited after the first tank of gas, I am at 15.8. Hoping it gets better

    If you drive 12000 miles per year, the diff between 15mpg and 21mpg would only be about $76 per month ... assuming $4/gal gas prices.

    Nothing to get too excited about. If you were getting 40mpg, that would be another story ... but 5-7mpg improvement is not enough to dump a V8 to get a T-V6.

    So far the reports from owners do not have the new Tundra getting 5-7 mpg better than the 5.7, it’s only a couple mpg.

    You’ll have a hard time EVER making a new vehicle pencil out simply to save gas.

    depends what reports you want to hear. I have seen lots of reports of getting 20-24 mpg on a tank. And these are all new trucks under 1000k miles. In winter..

    Want to hear? I’m only going off of what I’ve seen, that one dude who got his truck stuck because he doesn’t know how to operate it is the only one I’ve seen posting 20+ mpg. Less than or more than 1,000 miles on the ODO means what?

    I’ve seen the following reported
    16.5
    16.8
    18
    19
    15.9

    On the V8 going between my in laws and my place, I would normally get about 12.5mpg. Today I got 16 with the new 2022. One of the things the dealership mentioned to me, not sure how much truth/myth there is to it, but real MPG won't start showing until about the third tank of gas. Something about the break in period and the engine building into its peak performance after being just built. It may explain some of the low amounts for folks. For me, even at 3.5mpg more on the first go around, that's a decent jump to start off with just driving at low speed with a ton of stop signs.

    Can you tell us the distance for this trip, usual time frame it takes and is it winter temps?

    If anyone is using a Tundra mostly for stop and go driving.

    With the new Gen 3 should benefit in stop and go without boost. I am assuming it will get similar to my son's 4.0 Liter in his 4 Runner.
    Hope people prove me wrong with their posts.

    I can say the 5.7 Liter in my 2018 takes a while to warm up in cold weather. During this time its mileage is worse. If ones ideas in winter is to start it up, wait a minute then just go, if the temp needle has not moved - your mileage will be terrible but I have never got.

    12.5 mpg = 18.82 l/100km

    except when towing.

    I see 16-17 l/100km on the computer which is about 14-15 mpg on short trips. but I will say.
    Another big issue with the computer in my 2018. It starts high and goes down. If its a 5 minute run to get something.
    Forget what the computer says.

    I completely agree regarding the computer. I've seen 60L/100km on our 2017 Prius when we start it up on a cold morning. Mind you, it drops lightning fast and ends up getting less than 4.5L/100km within 25 minutes. Forget the computer. Go by the pump.

    Good thread!

    Did the math on my commute and savings would be about $30 a month... Booooo lol it would take me at least 5 years for the savings to break even on the TTL. It's for the best, I don't need to upgrade I just like new stuff.

    I'm excited to see what the hybrid can do, had a Prius rental last week in Florida and I never thought I'd say I love a Prius. Besides driving extremely well and comfortable, it somehow managed to only use .49 cents in gas for the 90 minutes of stop and go traffic. Maybe the last person over filled it but I was shocked, it even spit a little fuel out when the pump clicked, she was still full full.

    Edited mine also. Guess I'm an idiot and saw the opinion and not the joke. My bad. Was just attempting to have an adult discussion over differing opinions. Something that seems rare on this forum, eh? LOL

    I recall now the first time the fuel warning light came on in my truck 3 years ago. I was very surprised it came on so soon, and I actually thought there might be something wrong with the fuel gauge. It did sink in though that I was driving a beast, and that Toyota was probably using a worst case usage scenario. So I appreciated that.
