I wouldn't mind mileage like that but as long as I have that fiberglass top and live in the Appalachian mountains, I doubt I will ever see it.

He bought it new and has all the records. Looks like he was getting around 26mpg each fillup this past year.
1994 2.3 liter, 5 speed
And he is one huge dude.......like 380lbs.....he has 170 lbs on me.....LOL

I wish my truck would get that as I am getting about 17 but not until I installed a K & N air filter kit, and a fuel saver module under the dash with 4 wires that I bought off e-bay for $90.00....so 22 is great

FYI
Quote:
EPA Fuel Economy Ratings Prior to the 2008 Model Year

Manufacturers and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) test a vehicle's fuel economy ratings in far less than real-world conditions. The vehicle is placed on a dynamometer, a set of rollers that lets the car or truck sit in place while it turns the vehicle's wheels.
The drag on the rollers is adjusted to simulate different driving conditions, but the vehicle are never tested in the real world -- without wind resistance and without any accessories running. To top it off, up until 2008 simulated speeds were a lot less than the average driver drives -- an average of 20 miles per hour for city tests and 48 miles per hour for highway conditions.
Quote:
EPA Fuel Economy Ratings Calculations From 2008 Onwards

For 2008 and onward, the EPA has adjusted its testing requirements to simulate higher driving speeds, faster acceleration, running a vehicle under colder temperatures -- and the opposite, operating a vehicle with the air conditioning on.
The additions have reduced mileage projections. Results are expected to be somewhat closer to the actual mpg estimates listed on the sticker, but don't expect them to be right on target. Estimates will still be higher than most of us will see in real life, because it's impossible to duplicate our actual driving habits in a laboratory.
Don't expect to get what the EPA sticker claims on a vehicle prior to 2008.

OK, we have a 2010 6 cyl Ranger and all of a sudden we are only getting 16 mpg on a highway long distance trip. Is it time to visit my dealer and complain? No A/C on just heater.

22 is pretty decent for winter I'm thinking. Now I have the older Lima 2.3, but I get right about 20 mpg in the winter and 24 or so during the summer. I'm guessing you'd be 25-26 in the summer with a Duratec.
