The term 'fuel economy' is an oxymoron; They should just refer to it as 'fuel consumption'. My truck is happy when it consumes a lot.

I've got nothing to add, except my Tundra runs a lot better on ethanol free gas but it is .20 cents a gallon more. I buy it anyways. Most the time anymore I just drive it how I feel like and put gas in it when it's just below 1/4 tank. Buying cheaper gas and driving easy to save a few mpg is a nice thought, but it's not happening in my world. LOL....

Other than the super charger, nothing yet other than a light foot will help increase your fuel economy. Computer learns the way you drive and adjusts to it. Keep a light foot, but once every few weeks stand on it to blow out the junk.
how do i reset that computer to learn the way i drive ( i got the truck used)

Unhook the negative cable on the battery for a few minutes.

the ECM should automatically adjust as you drive it. It's constantly "learning"

Now, do tow mirrors really affect mileage due to them sticking out a little further this creating some wind resistance? I doubt it is noticeable, but that's the first I've heard anyone say that.
I have factory tow mirrors on my Tundra. i run 38 psi in my 275/65/18 Bridgestone Duellers (wish it had come with the Michelins) and I am easy on the gas pedal. I get over 19 mpg in the summer, usually around 19.3. Country highways, time my stops, keep a little space between me and the vehicle in front of me so I don't have to ride the brakes.
