What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Gas Mileage of the 2006 Toyota Tundra

2006 Toyota Tundra Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2007 4dr Extended Cab 6.5ft bed 381-horsepower 5.7L V8
6-speed automatic 4WD, part-time w/low range
Gas mileage isn't fantastic but come on if you own a large truck you shouldn't expect good mileage. Two or Three miles per gallon difference between other manufactures shouldn't make you change. Tundra has a higher resale value and way better reputation for reliability. That is a huge money savings.

17 in suburban operation 20 on trips when I maintain a constant 65.

15 mpg, way less than my Chevy

Was ok in the beginning. 18ish on the highway and 15 in mixed driving. Since adding ethonal to the gas here in VT down to about 11.5 in mixed driving.
2005 2dr Regular Cab 8ft bed 282-horsepower 4.7L V8

15/18 EPA at least partly due to the lack of V-6 or manual transmission option with 4x4. Comparable GM trucks are better in this area.
