No, the lower you run that engine at speedwise the better mileage you get, your computer takes car of all that. That's why they tell you to accelerate gradually, avoid full throttle passing, and people that drive freeway often by smaller gears to run a lower RPM. I run my Sonoma in 5th gear (it's a five speed the Ranger isn't) all the time. I get better mileage that way

Nope its a 5 speed with overdrive in the Ranger. All autos are to my understanding in my body style, but I love a manual better too, the Ranger has a family history, Grandpa (Norm in my Sig) bought it new and left it to me when he passed two years ago. If I had bought the truck on my own you're damn right it would be a five speed lol
