More than you think, depending upon that person's needs. My current one is the most mpg oriented one I've owned. Most I've worried about, but not really.

At the end, I retesting results....

Fuel economy performance was a big plus when I was shopping for a truck in 2012.

Maybe again when Cali gas hits $6 if pickups are still on sale there, or $4.50 a gal in most of the rest of the country.

Would be interesting to see how the 3.0 Duramax or EcoDiesel would compare with the MPGs.

And FWIW, I think it is CRAZY to question "who buys a pickup for MPG". Most people are concerned with it. And it will become more important in the future.

Range is a very important item to me. Doesn't fuel economy have something to do with that?

Does it? my truck gets 600+_ miles with 17 mpg not towing. It's towing capacity and low rpm torque that counts. Both of which Toyota fails unless they have a new truck out.

If you are hauling a sheet of plywood or you lawn mower then sure get a Toyota.

Most truck buyers aren't towing full time or even retired and doing extensive traveling. Their trucks are their daily drives. FWIW when I was working I drove anywhere from 2-60 miles one way. I work construction for 30 years before retiring. I drove a Ranger or a small car because I got decent mpg's. Today I don't put 1/2 the miles on my trucks that I did when working so mpg's only matter when towing.
No way could I've afforded to own a full size V8 truck back then.

IMO the higher the better so I don't have to plan as many stops. Plus it helps the pocket book.

Apples to apples why would anyone choose a gas hog over a gas miser?
