Yea Im going to see if there is a way I could go reserve then back to active. If not I may just get out. Thats the biggest thing Im trying to figure out. Stay in or get out. Another off topic thread presented by the Nor Cal folks

I know how you guys feel, I have put 1800 in two weeks of owning my '11. It had 5 miles when I first test-drove it, I use this truck for my Swimming Pool cleaning business. Not sure if It just broke in completely or not but my first few tanks were in the 17-18 range, just filled the tank up today with my first 21.8 mpg tank. mixed driving, lots of in town and stop & go, turning the truck off/ on etc.. also hauling 300-400+ lbs in the box daily. I'm good with anything over 20 mpgs, but I agree I hate to see my milage climb so fast. Got this truck to drive the snot out of plus all my Pool-Guy buddies drive Rangers and swear by them, say they absolutely last forever and take a beating. Put it away wet and get in and drive her again tomorrow

I have about 12,000 km on my 2011, and started off getting around 15mpg, I gassed up tonight and calculated a 19.69mpg. Seems to be getting better all the time.

Only things I've done are synthetic oil, flowmaster exhaust and driving it a little easier than I first did.
