What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Gas Mileage of the Toyota Tacoma

Toyota Tacoma Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2011 4dr Crew Cab 6ft bed 236-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic RWD
Just completed a 7,000 mile trip, 2 adults & lightly, fully loaded bed. Best mileage 24 mpg, lowest 22 mpg. Typical town/freeway mix has been 22-23 mpg. Flat terrain, easy driving.
2009 4dr Crew Cab 6ft bed 236-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic RWD
Even with the V6, the fuel economy hovers around 22MPG with mixed city/highway driving. A lot cheaper to refuel than a full size.
2008 4dr Extended Cab 6ft bed 236-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic 4WD, part-time w/low range
I thought the fuel economy, for a truck, was excellent. It gets 5mpg better than a Honda Ridgeline.
2007 4dr Extended Cab 6ft bed 159-horsepower 2.7L I4
5-speed manual RWD
The 4 cyl specifically for a truck is great. According to my computerized Scanguage I am getting a consistent 21-25 mpg per tank with all around driving and commuting. 21 gallong tank.
2007 2dr Regular Cab 6ft bed 159-horsepower 2.7L I4
5-speed manual RWD
Fuel economy was close to the best for the class. I get around 27/mpg at highway speeds.
2006 4dr Crew Cab 5ft bed 236-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic RWD
At the time of purchase, it had the best gas mileage of all the small trucks I looked at. (Ford, Chevy, Mazda, GMC)
2005 4dr Crew Cab 5ft bed 245-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic 4WD, part-time w/low range
I get 21mpg in the warm months and only 18mpg in the winter. I use the 4wd a lot when roads are snowy or slippery. I had hoped for better gas mileage and find it ridiculous that there aren't better truck engines available from any of the manufacturers. A turbo-diesel four-cylinder would be much more practical in the Tacoma.

2010 4dr Crew Cab 5ft bed 236-horsepower 4.0L V6

less than 20 mpg
2008 4dr Crew Cab 5ft bed 236-horsepower 4.0L V6
6-speed manual 4WD, part-time w/low range
The one I test drove was a 4 wheel drive with a V6 and its gas mileage was worse than my 4 cylinder 2WD.
2007 2dr Regular Cab 6ft bed 159-horsepower 2.7L I4
4-speed automatic RWD
23 mpg on the highway at 55 mph. This is vs. the 1993 toyata truck which regularly got 30+ mpg.
2007 4dr Crew Cab 5ft bed 236-horsepower 4.0L V6
6-speed manual 4WD, part-time w/low range
close to 16-17 in town, which is on par with a fullsize v8
2007 4dr Crew Cab 5ft bed 236-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic 4WD, part-time w/low range
Its terrible.
2005 4dr Crew Cab 5ft bed 245-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic 4WD, part-time w/low range
I expected better fuel economy for a small truck. But none of the trucks get good economy. The manufacturers need to get with the program on truck fuel economy.
 

Toyota Tacoma Gas Mileage (MPG)

Unlike other fuel economy surveys, TrueDelta's Real-World Gas Mileage Survey includes questions about how and where a car was driven. So you can get an idea of the Toyota Tacoma's real-world MPG based on how and where you drive a car.
