To be honest it's all according to what I'm listining to.lol normally I shift at 2000 to 2500 rpms. BUT... I've been known to use a good bit of skinny pedal when the time calls for it. One way is shitty, the other is shittier. Lol

I totally agree. Even more so up here in Canada where an fx4 ranger is only 1g less than a supercrew f 150

at 55 mph I get 24.8 miles to the gallon (3.78L)
in city (25-35mph) it would be around 18-22.

Simple routine maintenance is the key to good gas mileage.
Seafoam it.
Plug and wire it.
Keep the MAF, IAC, TB clean.
Run a little Lucas injector cleaner in it.
Can't wheel it or drag it all the time without a little TLC.

I get half decent gas milage 13mpg city and 18-20mpg highway and thas on the bigger tires cruise control at 75mph doesn't do that terrible.

My buddy has an 06 f150 and gets around 9 in town but 20+ highway so I honestly don't know how much better the f150 is. He had the 5.4 and 4wd

ya but look at how much more truck you get in every area for about the same fuel mileage.

my buddies F150 gets 10 in town but 26 on the highway ( 5.4 crew cab 4x4)

my ranger gets 13 in town and only 20 on the highway. ( 4.0 ext cab 4x4)

The great equalizer I thought would be the price, but up in Canada, with all the incentives offered on the f150 you can get a fully loaded crew cab for about 1g more than an fx4 ranger.

I'm not knocking the ranger, it's a sold truck, but the fact that it does have a 5 speed auto, highway fuel mileage definitely leaves something to be desired.

The 5spd auto is better than what chevy used for eons that damn 4l60e did no favors for gas
