Thx Giovanni,

Do allow me to propose some terminology.  Any number which can be expressed as the sum of two cubes two or more different ways is a taxicab number.

Any taxicab number which can be expressed as sum of cubes exactly 2 ways is a 2 taxi or double taxi as you suggested.  All of those on your list below are double taxis.

Any number which can be expressed as the sum of cubes exactly three ways is a triple taxi and so on.

I found 8 triple taxis yesterday and will see if I can find about the same number in the next half hour.  Hint: I discovered a marvelous algorithm, not the one posted earlier.  I think I shall call it… hmmm… something creative, such as... spike’s taxi algorithm.

Spike,

Here the 2 Taxi numbers up to 10^7. I made also a map of the components (first number bigger in green and second number red). Not sure it means anything but there is an interesting gap in the middle. I will try the 3 Taxi numbers overnight. In the following list the first number is the taxi number, the following 2 are the cubes of the first sum and the 2 following numbers are the cubes of the second sum.
