I sitll haven't had my first fill-up, so I can't answer. But I just wanted to chime in, for those of you letting you car sit idle to "warm up" in the morning, that's doing nothing but ruining your mileage. You never want to let the engine sit and idle like that more for than like 30 seconds. The engine will warm up much more quickly if you actually start driving it. Keep the gas pedal light until it's warm, yes, but it should help those mileage numbers as well as the engine itself.

Posted this elsewhere, figured it fits here as well:

I get good MPGs (17.5-18.5 MPG) from 55-65 mph but would never go that slow.

I rarely get 17.5 mpg at 70. Usually a hilly interstate or headwind knocks me back to 16.5'ish where I cruise (~72).

I was driving between San Antonio and Austin on that new 85 mph toll road at night with no wind and it's pretty flat and got 14.5 MPG.

I gave up planning MPGs with my truck since the wind can make such a huge difference. Was driving through northern Missouri/Iowa/Minnesotta the other day against a good head wind and only got 12.5 MPG at 72 MPH the whole damn way. Could almost watch the fuel gauge go down it was so bad.

Driving through Arkansas on the hilly interstates I get around 16.5 MPG regardless of wind (generally not that windy).

So, short version: mine is all over the place and sucks unless I go 55-65, which I'm not doing, so I learned to have a bigger fuel budget.

Tire pressure hasn't made too much difference for me vs. the wind and/or hills. Tried 35 all around and 30/32 (or whatever the door jamb says).

In town I get 11.9 usually and maybe 12.3 if my wife is riding with me a lot.

My 09' RW DC averaged 15.5 mpg, stock with a TRD intake.

With my 12' RW Crewmax I'm only averaging 14.5 stock with my TRD inatke. I chalk up the lower mpg to the extra weight of the crewmax. I also only have 5000 miles so there may be a little more break-in to go.

I dont baby the thing by any means, I use passing gear probably every day but I rarely floor it. My driving is half highway at 70mph, half in-town.

Past month or so, I've been splitting my commutes between using my truck, and riding my bike. So, my average MPG right now between the two is about 24mpg
Everything is AWESOME!
