Ya when I say "racing fuel" I'm being a smart ass. Sorry I get a little to caught up in NASCAR, I think they run something near 115-120 octane, sorry 4.0 you just couldn't handle it.

100% agree with this.

My Ranger would shut off after I would put it in park, which it would did for about a month. I started using Premium and got noticeably better mileage, a much smoother ride, and it still runs when I put it in park

Supposedly Louisville/Jefferson Co. requires all gas stations to have additives to cut down on ruining the environment but it ends up decreasing your mileage and is rough on your engine.

Ya I live in ohio, we get "winter gas" and "summer gas" which I can't stand. I try to opt more towards the higher stuff during winter but won't go anywhere other then Sunoco.

Just fill up with good gas from top tier companies and you'll be better off. Oh and clean the throttle body and maf on a regular basis. To each their own.

Tinted my taillights more. And tried plastidipping a section of my tailgate like a few guys on here have done, but it peeled off with the masking tape. Bright side is my ranger and ford badges are done now for maximum murdering out.
