2016 Toyota Tacoma: July Fuel Economy Update - Despite Road Trips, MPG Stays the Same
by Cameron Rogers, Associate Editor on August 12, 2016
July was a relatively slow month for our 2016 Toyota Tacoma. Kurt went offroading in the Mojave and European Correspondent Alistair Weaver took a few friends up Pacific Coast Highway (his account of the trip is forthcoming). But the Tacoma spent most its time sitting in our garage or running errands around town, and that didn't help its cause.
We averaged 18.5 mpg over the course of 1,500 miles, which didn't move the overall needle from 18.1 mpg. Check out the rest of the stats below.
Worst Fill MPG: 15.7 mpg
Best Fill MPG: 20.6 mpg
Average Lifetime MPG: 18.1 mpg (5.5 gallons per 100 miles)
EPA MPG Rating: 20 Combined (18 City/23 Highway)
Best Range: 362.7 miles
Current Odometer: 11,759 miles
