In my '00 Tacoma I could get 35mpg for several tanks in a row during the warm months. 4 cyl., 5 speed, 2wd, ExtraCab, standard bed. Then they took it away for frame rust.

I just got my '93 toyota truck (4cyl 5-speed manual) so I don't have really good numbers for my MPG, but I got on a trip to upstate New York I averaged 25.5 mpg@ 70 mph, and 26.5 in the mountains never exceeding 55 (except coasting down hill). But I got all this with 4 people and a bed full of luggage, food, and materials for a rental house my family owns.
What I'm trying to say is that 30 mpg for a 4cyl truck isn't impossible but I think 35 is stretching it without some aero mods.

My lifetime in 94.5 year toyota pu with 22re and manual trans (last one before tacoma) (mostly suburban travel very rairly on highway) is 27.2mpg. Thats 100,400 miles (not the vehicle I post about here). I've put 205/75/15s on it instead of 195/75/14s. Only other mod is alternator disconnect and 15 watt solar panel on dash. In summer I can run without turning on alternator. In winter I run 50/50. I've gotten into the 30mpg range on only 5 tanks out of the 315 fillups. Have my doubts on 35mpg.

My 4 cylinder Ranger is getting around 31 mpg around town and about 36 mpg highway, as seen in my fuel log. The only aero mods I've made are a grill block and about a 5 inch extension to the back of my topper.

My 4 cylinder Ranger gets about 31 mpg local and about 36 mpg on the highway, as shown in my fuel log. the only aero mods are a grill block and a 5 inch extension to my topper, plus blending the topper into the cab.

My 4 cyl 2WD truck gets high 30's at 55 MPH on a warm summer day with no wind. And 40 MPG with a tailwind. On a zero degree day with a headwind, I'm happy to get 30 MPG.

I'd believe 35 MPG from that truck on a hot summer day with a driver who's smooth on the gas pedal.

22 Maverick: Summer 2022 burned 62.74 gallons in 3145.1 miles for 50.1 MPG. Winter 2023-2024 - 2416.7 miles, 58.66 gallons for 41 MPG.

I've done it. I have a cab-height bed topper but no other mods. I've cracked 35 a few times and come close to 40 once. My truck is similar, carbed, no FE.

Did you buy the truck?
