285/70/17/toyotec ultimate lift- Have a lag in the begining when taking off but I think thats due to a computer problem that still hasnt been fixed.

Muffler 40 series Flowmaster- make improve mpg but i do step on it to hear it so its a win/loose situation

I get City- 17
Highway- 20ish

Depends what kind of fuel I get and where I get it from.

I know when my ride was stock i was getting better milleage but I only had it stock for 500 miles so not sure if this was true
it would say city-18/19
Highway- 20/21/22

I have about 1500 miles on my 2011 SR5 4wd. We do about half city and half highway and stay right around 19.5mpg.

I have close to 4000 on mine:

Daily - 80%city/20% Highway - about 18
Trip - About 19-20 has been the average mixed with my daily driving when I return home before my next fill up.

I would venture to say that a "true" trip on the highway would yield better than 20 mpg.

Nick,
What you are asking is very subjective. There are so many variables that go into fuel efficiency such as:
Location
Driving style
Type of gas
Tire pressure
Winter or summer
Mods

I have found it gets what Toyota advertises and I get an overall of about 19 mpg but that's me, driving a stock SR5 in the mountains with 35 psi tires in the spring using 87 gas. You will get about that. You will NOT get 30 mpg nor will you get 10 mpg, unless A) you are a hypermiler or B) you lift it to the sky, put on 44's and swap out for military axles. You will get somewhere in between those extremes.

There are a few things you can do that will give you, maybe, 1-2 mpg better (afew more psi in the tires, driving conservative) than average and a LOT of mods that will decrease your mpg such as:
Putting a tent on your roof
Adding weight like refrigerator, air compressor, camping gear
Bigger heavier tires
Heavier rims
Lifting your truck

In some cases with mods you will not notice any change in mpg (vent visors, bug shield, lighting mods). In others you will notice a lot of mpg change. For example, if you do a ton of mods like lift, big tires and wheels, full cage, etc but you only drive a few hundred miles a month so what? Now, if you are like me and drive 3K miles a month a simple change in tire pressure could hit the wallet harder than the guy with tons of mods who drives the 200 miles a month. Hope this helps.

Although I know the display gauge isnt 100% accurate... mine has read 18.8mpg for weeks now. All times I've calculated my miles the gauge isnt very close to real time driving but it averages over a few tanks much better. Ive driven 5000mi in my stock sr5 in a 20/40/40 mix of city/highway/suburbs. Also... I experienced a big jump in mpg (according to the gauge) after 2000 miles or so.
