Laugh all you want bro, I had a 99 7.3L Powerstroke Diesel for 10 years when I bought the Tundra. I am speaking from personal experience with both trucks, have you done extensive towing with both to be able to compare them? I'm not talking about 1 trip, I'm talking about years in both vehicles towing 2-3 days a week. Other than fuel mileage there really isnt much difference at all.

You may be right about the gas tank, I'm darn sure not going to try it, after the fuel light comes on and it then bottoms out on E is as far as I'm gonna take it!

I know I dont have 26.4, with the gauge on E I've never been able to pack more than 20.5... hard to imagine there being another 5 gallons after the fuel light came on and I ran it down to the E.


I noticed the same thing. I have the small v8

I read some message boards awhile back and some said that most cars/trucks fuel light comes on w 3 gallons lefts. The Tundra supposedly comes on w 6 gallons left.

I don't think I've ever crammed more than 18-19 gallons in mine

I've never put over 31 in my 2017 and it supposedly has 38. I've always been told the fuel lubricates and cools the fuel pump, so they make sure there is always some left when you hit EMPTY

A 99 3/4 ton barely had a tow rating more then modern 1/2 tons.

Tundras are in the dark ages on fuel mileage. They live on the myth that they last longer.

Guessed wrong. Driven the last 3 trucks I have owned 180k each with almost no issues. One is still going and I don't know how many miles is on it. I know it was about 9 years ago I got rid of it. Probably has 350K plus. No clue where the other two went or what happened to them. I just always want a new one about every 5 or 6 years.

All the brands can go along time if you don't do something stupid to them or get a lemon.
