Howdy

I recently purchased a 2006 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner Access Cab, 4 cylinder 5-speed. I am looking for ways to squeeze the most economy out of this vehicle. Hope to find some helpful hints in here.

Welcome to EM! There are some other Taco drivers around here that might be able to provide some vehicle specific advice as well when they see this.

Dude, it's 95 degrees, with a heat index over 100. I make a mean gumbo, but wait for the temps to fall a bit

They look like little 6 inch lobsters. At least, that's what I remember in the drainage ditches in Houston. Little mud-lobsters!!!!!
