Default What setup and Gas mileage?

Im thinking of getting 31*10.5*15 with stock suspension no cranks or lifts etc. for a 3.0 v6 manual xlt ranger 4*4 but it will be on 2wd most of the time. It will have k@n drop in filter, tuner/ programmer set to save gas, flowmaster exhaust. Anyone know the average gas mileage city and highway for a setup similiar to this, also anyone who is getting good gas mileage on a 3.0 if so, whats your setups. Also please no comments such as dont floor it or dont press the gas pedal so much or dont acclerate fast and such

2004 Edge 3.0 with 255/55/18 Falken ZEX04 tires. 15 - 24...26 coming back from Vegas...downhill...in a windstorm...hyper-miling.

So what you guys were talking about is that I shouldn't blow $300 on the cold air intake from K&N?

Not unless you also plan to buy a tuner and have the truck tuned.
