How to Improve a Tundra's Mileage

All three models of the Toyota Tundra--the regular cab, double cab and crew max--get an estimated 15 miles-per-gallon in the city and 19 on the highway. You can improve a Tundra's fuel economy through driving techniques, regularly servicing the engine and making changes to the truck.

Instructions

    • 1

      Change the oil every 3,000 miles. Always use the correct grade of oil: 0w20 synthetic motor oil. When you take the truck in for an oil change, have the mechanic check the air filter and transmission fluid levels. Low transmission fluid and a dirty air filter can reduce fuel economy.

    • 2

      Take extra weight out of the back of the truck. Extra weight will cause the engine to use more fuel.

    • 3

      Do not put large tires on your truck. Only use the recommended tire size. Large tires take more engine power to rotate.

    • 4

      Use cruise control and do not drive at high speeds or accelerate quickly. Slamming on the gas will reduce fuel economy up to 15 percent. Changing your driving style is the easiest and best way to improve your fuel economy.

    • 5

      Shift to high gears at low speeds if you have a manual transmission or Toyota's sport shift knob. The engine burns less fuel when it is turning slower. You will not be able to accelerate as fast in high gears, but you will improve your fuel economy.
