i drive a toyota tacoma and i get 15mpg highway and 9 city. i got 7inchs of lift and 35inch mud tires. how can i get better gas millage w/o getting smaller tires b/c if i get smaller tires its harder to get back in the woods to drag deer out
Build yourself a 4x4 Samurai with an IDI diesel (cheaper plus WVO), drop a TDI in your taco, or gear the OD down. Aeromods will likely help. Either way, it won't be financially worthwhile for a long time unless you can wrench/fab yourself. Like anything else, if you wanna save $$$ by getting better mileage you've gotta put the time in yourself. If not, pay whatever the gas station charges...

Older TD or gear down the OD and keep it at 55-65mph. Aero mods could help out too. But none of this will pay for itself unless you do the work yourself. AC won't matter in that size vehicle.
