2016 Toyota Tacoma: Fuel Economy Update For January - Initial Observations
by Brent Romans, Senior Automotive Editor on February 29, 2016
We're a little overdue but here's our first fuel economy report on our 2016 Toyota Tacoma.
For reference, we've got a 4WD TRD Pro with a 3.5-liter V6 engine and automatic transmission. The EPA says to expect 20 mpg in combined driving. Care to guess what we're averaging so far after the first 2,000 miles?
Worst Fill MPG: 16.9
Best Fill MPG: 19.3
Average Lifetime MPG: 17.8 mpg
EPA MPG Rating: 20 Combined (18 City/23 Highway)
Best Range: 349.0 miles
Current Odometer: 2,125
Is 17.8 mpg disappointing? Maybe a little. But there's not much point in being critical since we're just getting started with our Tacoma. We'll have more to report with February's update in a week or two.
