We were getting around 19 or 20 until just recently. My husband made a trip from Redding to San Jose and back and he only got 16 mpg. What a disappointment that was.

One thing you need to do is adjust for you speedometer being off with the 31s. See earlier posts to this thread on the difference in tire sizes. My gas mileage turns to crap when I pull my small trailer with
my golf cart. The cart windshield (folded down) is quite a drag and the truck doesn't want to get into overdrive and stay there on any slight hills. Flat roads are okay. Drops down to 15 MPG.

Well, those are loose figures but $40 divided by $2.90 is 13.79 gallons. 225 divided by 13.79 is 16.3 mpg. You need to get a little closer to the mileage and gallons used to be specific. You should be getting better than 16 but then again I don't know how you drive it. Lead footed?, then 16 is about right.

Ok, speaking of MPG: Why can't we (American's) get the VW Bluemotion here. VW sells plenty of vehicles in the U.S. The DAMN thing gets north of 70 MPG! WTF! F the Prius and F the Dumb car. GET ME A BLUEMOTION!!

On a tangent: I know damn well the engineers at Ford CAN make a V6 Ranger that gets 35+ mpg. DON'T tell me they can't. Jaguar makes a twin turbo V6 that gets upwards of 49 on the highway with the AC on. It was proven on Top Gear BBC.

Just bought this 2000 3.0L flex, 2wd, auto supercab with 225.70R15's. I brought it back from Iowa, top MPG was 22.9mpg. Town driving only 17.3mpg. Changed the plugs (the gap on old plugs was 0.98) and my City/hwy is 20.5mpg. I was hopping for alot more mpg with the new plugs and wires. But after reading this forum, I'm about average for the 3.0L. The OCT level dosen't seem to mater with this engine like it did in my big truck. Anyone else with a Flex notice that?

Anyone try headers or duals on their ranger? My 150 went up in mpg when I had duals and flowmasters installed. This truck is new to me and I'm not sure where to go to get the best MPGs but I drive 67k per year with my refinishing business, so I'm hoping to get in the high 20's if possible.

Damb 4 banger posting 30's+..... Almost made me want to cry thinking I'm low 20's, this forum is for v6's. Your depressing us with your numbers.
