Thank you! Believe me, it needed a bath very badly by the time we dragged it back home after more than 6,000 miles up into Canada and back!
My gas mileage has been very consistent as my DW and I have found that keeping the speed in the 57-61 mph range works best all around and is very stress-free... (radar traps=a non issue)
My first trip down to AZ and back got me 10.9 mpg. This last trip up into the Canadian Rockies via Montana, Idaho and Washington, then back through the Columbia River Gorge in Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Yellowstone, down into Utah and the Flaming Gorge dropped down to 10.5 mpg for the round trip.
Once during the last half of a very long day out on the flatland of Kansas on the way home, I ran at better than 70 mph and the mileage dropped to 8.8 mpg on the last 2 tankfuls, so there you go! Speed kills!
With the TRD "mods" on the Tundra, we're cranking out about 410HP, and there's power to spare, even at high altitude.
How is your gas mileage????
