    Hi Bob
    A few months ago I bought a 2015 Black Tundra. It has the big motor in in. I was really hesitant about buying it because of the big motor. I live in Gainesville Florida. I take trips to my Daughters house in orlando. This gives me a chance to check the mileage. My first trip was 17 mpg. I was pleased with that. Another trip I got 20. Well I figured I figured wrong. Lol this last trip I got 18.8 Is this possible or am I dreaming? I was talking to a fellow customer in Lowes in which he said that the tundras have a sweet spot and if you can hit that you can get 20. Well even though I got 20 I don't claim it because getting that with the 5.7 L engine seems impossible. The truck has about 23000 miles on it. Thanks for reaching out Bob.

    Via computer or hand calculated? The computer is sometimes off by about .5 mpgs. And it's entirely possible if you drive really really slow. Like speed limit slow. And slow acceleration. Aired up, with a tailwind, running through stop signs.

    I can also get 17-20, easily, when driving on flat roads without stops doing 65-70.

    Usually this happens for about 1/8th of a tank before I start driving to enjoy it, at which point my fuel economy drops to about 15.7mpg highway.

    Thank you everybody for your response. I now feel comfortable claiming my mileage.
    Thanks to you all. I really love this truck but I know I don't have to convince you. Lol. My mileage is also about 72 miles an hour. Thank you all again.
