I'll pay attention next time. I usually bust into the place and yell GIVE ME TEH USUAL
The bottom line is:
The Tundra gets big truckish mileage. The Prius gets Priusy mileage. And something needs to be done about my dead asian mother. I guess race doesn't play a part after death, but it feels good to point out race.

I present to the owners of this site: When a thread is deemed silly, or that tundraman guy starts his routine "Fords are safe, Tundra sucks now, blablabla" I will derail it asap. Please create the title "Forum demoderator" I'm here to help.

Good call, those last two hadn't been pointed out yet. But the points you listed are mostly what I got out if this thread. Being that this isn't an "OMG my mpg is so bad" thread and its actual purpose was discuss the contributing factors (not, how to fix them), I consider this thread a success.

Damn man. Another example that supports that a good reason the Tundra is "so bad" is because other manufacturers fluff their numbers and don't match real world numbers.

I don't keep MPG but I do keep gallons burned per month.

My 2014 Silverado burned about 90 gallons a month on average.
My 2017 Tundra is burning about 95 gallons per month.

I have a small farm and tow a horse trailer and tow my boat several days per week. Additionally, I make a 150 mile round trip highway every Tuesday.

Overall, I'm actually happy with what I'm getting. I honestly believe that real-world difference is 1-2 MPG from most of the brands. I love the 5.7 far better than the Chevy 5.3.

I have no regrets.

I'm gonna say a lot of it has to do with having an option between 4:10 and 4:30 gears vs Fords 3:30, 3:55, and 3.73 as well as engine displacement. The Ecoboost is gonna sip fuel compared to our V8's

That's a good way to gauge if you do the same general activities like commuting or general work. And as a truck rookie I like hearing that rolls are more satisfied with Tundra than others owned. Thnx

Just did a 20 hour trip in a friends 2016 Ford f 150 crew cab 5' box. Basically 14 liters per 100 kms the entire trip. Indicated. The down side is we could only get IN one back door and only get OUT the other back door. It had just came from the dealer for doors that don't unlock in the cold and washer fluid that does not work in the cold. The other truck on the trip was a 2017 F150. It just had a new rear end installed before the trip. This is why I drive a Toyota.

This question got me thinking about a few things that I've read around here and I wonder if a couple of questions could be answered for me?

1. How does our gears compare to others? Is our 4:30's better than everyone else?
2. How does our engine compare to others? Is our 5.7 a bigger engine than the rest of the half ton trucks? My dad's '12 dodge has a 5.7, but his engine seems tiny compared to mine.

The Tundra is the only truck I know of running a DOHC V8. Everyone else is a standard pushrod V8. Displacement is the same but the dimensions are not

The Tundra has the bestgearing of any 1500. The 4:30 mated to the 5.7 must make it pull like a Train.

The other thing thet I love about Toyota, I do not need to buy a fully loaded truck to get the 5.7. WIth GM I need to get loaded just to get the 6.2.

I ALSO love that Toyota does not use EPS or AFM.like GM does.

That is why I am going Tundra for my next truck.
