    That's about what I'm getting for a 4wd ext cab.What more can you ask for.
    If your not satisfied with that type of mileage, then maybe start looking for a Toyota 4 cy Tacoma 2wd drive.
    I am not trying to be a smart***, but It cold be much worse.
    Good Luck

    yeh you're doing pretty good. Thats what most people get. If you're worried about mileage just be happy your not drivin a 6.0

    You're doing well if you are pulling 15 in town! On the open road, I've managed a tad over nineteen a couple times - but only during the summer months and on inter state trips. Usually this time of year, I am looking at 12 in town, and about 16-17 on the highway.
