    Real-Life MPG Thread - Share Your 2024+ Tacoma 4th Gen's Gas Mileage! ⛽

    Here are my mileage figures for my first three fill ups. I think I will average 20.5 with most of my miles coming from stop and go traffic averaging around 25mph. These figures were obtained driving the car as lightly as I could and lots of ECO mode. The tires are also still at 40psi, I will...

    Bought a 2024 Tacoma Off-Road Premium today!

    I'm averaging fill ups of ~14.9 gallons and I believe i will be averaging ~20.5mpg in my truck which should easily give me a range of ~300 miles. As you can see in my numbers, I have stretched my fill ups as far as I felt safe to do so and typically wont go this far after I'm done with my mpg...

    Limited upper interior door panel is different

    I wouldn’t call it all hunched over as this is one of the few cars I drive where I sit far back and my head is always making contact with the headrest. I lay my elbow on the rest up there and tug at the wheel every 15 seconds or so as I have a long commute and use the adaptive cruise control.

    Limited upper interior door panel is different

    I rest my shoulder on it when I drive and it’s a bit hard and was thinking it would be a great aftermarket idea if someone came out with. Pad you can stick there with double sided tape. The pad could look like the ones that some people use in front of their keypads.

    After 10 days with my 2024 Tacoma Off-Road --- things that could be improved...

    I posted pictures on another thread that show very little room for a larger tank. The exhaust limits the space and now I need to crawl black under there to see what f there would have been more room on the outside yet side as Toyota switched side for the tank.

    Black Toyota grille emblem part number # P/N ?

    Thanks, I am thinking of using a feeler gauge to see if I can push the tabs. Will try to tackle it this weekend. Worse case I glue the broken one back on or wait for a grill mod.

    Production dates/VIN sequence

    Looking at the allocation sheet from a couple days ago, looks like one with a vin ending in 19 shipped to the dealer MD the first week of February. It was an Ice Cap SR. Interesting ship day, wonder if it was held up for something. Each of the two plants seems to be using their own numbers so...

    [Cause: Wet Connection] My 2024 Tacoma issues:Ultra-sonic detecting and ranging system, drive-start control system, radiator grill shutter, CEL

    I’m guessing that’s the sensor that detect a the air temperature that controls the shutter. It clearly is a sensor by the looks of it. There are tons of connectors under these trucks and I am planning on checking all that I can this weekend to see if any are loose. I have 850 miles on mine and...

    Production dates/VIN sequence

    I am really surprised that nothing has leaked out on why they are being held. I’m sure they are loosing some sales. They are probably thinking that they will sell all they can build, I wouldn’t be surprised if this was a down year due to price increases and high interest rates. There will also...

    After 10 days with my 2024 Tacoma Off-Road --- things that could be improved...

    I typically state that I babied it when describing my MPG when trying to squeeze every last bit of MPG out of my car. Baby means being as smooth as possible on the throttle. It looks like my commute of mixed freeway and surface streets equals around 20.2MPG and a range of ~300 miles. I did...

    Production dates/VIN sequence

    Scary as my serial number is only around 300 from that one and u see a lot of skipped numbers in the sequence. I have a list at home where I parsed out all of the common junk and only output the last 6 characters to see what the lowest VIN that has been sold is. I think it was around 45 or 50.

    Black Toyota grille emblem part number # P/N ?

    Will the emblem pull out without breaking the tabs or do we have to push them in from the back? I pulled at it a bit the other day and didn’t want chance breaking it.

    Production dates/VIN sequence

    I’m not seeing that so far when I break down the numbers from the sold tab of the allocations sheet. I actually see a lot of holes in the sequence.

    Production dates/VIN sequence

    What is the manufactured date on the sticker. Will most likely be 0124 or 0224?

    Production dates/VIN sequence

    I’m curious as to how Toyota assigns the VIN numbers as I have seen some VIN numbers higher then mine that were built in December or January while mine was built this month and is in the 600 range. Mine has a build date of 0224 and the VIN number is in the 600 range. Anyone else care to post...

    TRD Jon traded his 3rd gen for 2024 Tacoma TRD OR + 600 Mile Road Trip

    My tires were 40psi when I picked it up form the dealer, that was the first thing I checked and set when I performed PDI’s on Toyotas in the mid 80’s. We had to install trim rings, mirrors, check all fluid levels, pull the cardboard from the disk breaks and undercoat them along with multiple...

    [Update: just an unplugged connector!] Going for service repair: "System Malfunction Visit Your Dealer" error message

    Took a look at my truck to confirm that it does indeed have the shutter and it does. There also appears to possibly be a sensor that measures the temperature there too. Here are some pictures of the sensor and the shutter in the open position.

    2024 Tacoma EPA certified MPG numbers finally posted

    I agree as they list engine start and stop in the tabs. It difficult to see it on my phone. Will need to check the website on my computer. You would think that the limited would have its own numbers since it’s an all wheel drive system different from ours.

    2024 Tacoma EPA certified MPG numbers finally posted

    I thought the same thing, I did find something about engine/trans types. I’m guessing the extra 1mpg is for the cars with the start and stop system.
