Looks like some good and some not so. Ill check to see if i can get owners contact info. Not excited about mileage comments. Tundra is 14 around town, 18 on the highway with a cover on it and 10 or better towing. The bigger the engine.....

Thanks for your comments.

I had an 8.1 in my 2002 Avalanche. It pulled great. I got 10mpg around town, and about 8 towing. The oil was down around a quart between 3000 mile oil changes. Sold it at 100,000 miles with no problems ever experienced.

If you are worried about mileage go with a used diesel. You will thank yourself later.

Bottom line, if you're worried about mileage, forget camping and pulling any trailer or driving a MH...

Very true OC. If you want good mileage sell the truck and trailer and buy a Prius!!!!!

That is a 500 CI engine. I would not expect good MPG and as it ages it will burn or leak some oil. My friend has one that he uses to pull a Bar-B-Que trailer and he claims that he gets about 7.5 MPG. He got it because he said that the diesel's cost to much. God Luck

Just sayin' that 8 is a jump down from 10. Means 25% more in gas money. Like paying $3.75 for gas instead of $3.00.

Maybe the diesel is the right thing to do.
