What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Gas Mileage of the 2003 Toyota 4Runner

2003 Toyota 4Runner Real Gas Mileage: Cons

2004 4dr SUV 235-horsepower 4.7L V8
5-speed automatic AWD w/low range
I knew going in that it would use a lot, but it still makes me grimace. Still, when we had a foot of new snow and I was driving around stalled and tire-spinning vehicles with absolutely no difficulty (on Michelin all-seasons), you figure that it balances. see full Toyota 4Runner review

It uses quite a bit of gas, I average 16 l/ 100km, or roughly about 15 mpg, and I do fair bit of highway driving. see full Toyota 4Runner review

Not that I dislike the 4runners fuel economy, actually for a large sport utility it does pretty good, just done buy a suv if your looking to get good gas mileage. see full Toyota 4Runner review

Trip gauge is incorrect. when it says 22mpg you are really getting 20 mpg, but not bad for a big V8 just annoying that the gauge is off by about 2 mpg. see full Toyota 4Runner review
