Re: Gas mi on modified taco\'s

I look at it this way, if you like modding your truck, why does it matter about your gas mileage? Just do what you want to it. A few extra miles per gallon isn't really that big of a deal. We all waste our money on other things but aren't concerned about that. Bolt on whatever you want and don't worry about it. If it gets bad gas mileage, are you going to stop driving it? NO. I have never kept track of my gas mileage and I'm almost 30.

some of the mods like air filter, exhaust claims they can give better gas mileage. i think part off this is true, but some case if you have mod in your truck you want to drive like maniac. More gas than normal driving.

True, that's not good. I have the v6 though and honestly have no idea what kinda mileage I get.
