When it was warm, I got 20 every tank. My drive is about 2 miles on the highway, about 2 to get to the highway, and another 2 after I got off. 4.0, 4X4, 5spd, 3.73 gears. Climbing passes, I got 21.5.

I have 03 level II, I get 14-15 in the winter about 250 to a tank, and summer I get 16-18about 300 to a tank. I don't think I have been under 14 unless it was below freezing and I was running 4x4 for a longer distance. I also got 14-15 to tank when I was working 9 miles from work, but now that im 22 miles one way I get better gas mileage. Level two looks like a decent deal just have to makes sure it shifts good, and engine doesn't chatter (timing chain). And maybe at those miles one or the other has been replaced/rebuilt.

Don't bother with that one then. I can't believe he's asking 6k+ for a ranger with a knocking engine.
