2016 Toyota Tacoma: Fuel Economy Update for April
by Ed Hellwig, Executive Editor on May 11, 2016
Our 2016 Toyota Tacoma is getting a healthy amount of miles on its odometer, so this month we brought it in for its first scheduled service. It was just a check up for the most part as an oil change wasn't even part of the suggested maintenance.
Apart from that quick trip, our Tacoma hauled a few bikes in its versatile bed and annoyed yet another editor with its touchy brakes. A heavy dose of urban driving also drove its overall fuel economy number down to 18.3 mpg overall. A big chunk of that was due to its worst overall tank yet which came in a 15.7 mpg.
Worst Fill MPG: 15.7
Best Fill MPG: 19.8
Average Lifetime MPG: 18.3
EPA MPG Rating: 20 Combined (18 City/23 Highway)
Best Range: 349.0 miles
Current Odometer: 7,738
