Still, 1821 is VERY respectable for a "1/2" ton class truck. I do like those Tundras. I had one years ago. Broke my heart to sell it, but I attained a hellish commute and couldn't afford to put gas in it any more.

Camper bob I understand.. when I'm in the city not towing I get about 17mpg, when I'm in the country and not towing, on flat land I have gotten up to 24 mpg, typically about 22 mpg.. But we typically only drive the Tundra when were with the TT, other wise we just bought a KIA Soul... LOL cheap and fits our needs perfectly... run to the grocery store and lowes

guess in reality I'm a cheap bastard

Interesting note, when we were looking at trucks was not going to even look at "foreign" vehicles.. checked consumer reports and found out it had the top rating that year, and, it has more American labor AND parts than any other 1/2 ton pickup, chevy and ford included...

LOL! I'm probably every bit as cheap as you are!

Back in the day DW bought herself a brand new Mustang GT. She couldn't stand putting the miles on her brand new baby, so we bought ourselves a 1995 Nissan 200 SX (?) from my brother for $1000. Some new tires and we had her all fixed up, and it only leaked like a quart every 500 miles! Anyway, we called it "The Mule". That thing got the best fuel mileage I've ever seen. We took it from Austin to South Padre Island, to Nuevo Progresso (back when it was safe) to Brownsville, back to South Padre Island and back to Austin all on one tank of fuel. Blew ice cold A/C the whole way!

Hey guys, I made a mistake. Buddy has the Toyota Tundra with the bigger engine. Got confused thinking about my ram. It is my birthday in two more days so that explains some of it. Thanks to all of you for your input. I think he is going to be pushing it capacity wise.
