What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Gas Mileage of the 2010 Toyota Tacoma

2010 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.
