Default My new neighbor's haver a Ranger

The new neighbors that moved in right across from me a few weeks ago have a '02 Ranger XLT 2WD Supercab, auto, flex fuel, it's dark green with tan interior and it's in near showroom condition. I was chatting with the owner the other day she bought it brand new and had a spray on line put on it shortly after they bought it. it's loaded power windows locks mirrors, and has the sliding rear window. She want s to sell it soon for something bigger (recently divorced single mom) I'd be halfway tempted but my mom's boyfriend says stay away from the FFV ones.

The biggest downfall to the FFV that i've heard is the fuel recognition sensors or whatever are reallll expensive when they fail.

Thanks for the tip, also I'm not sure if it's a 2 door of 4 door, or if it has jump seats or not, looks like it had the 2 door-style rear speakers covers. Also, even though mine is a boring base XL, It has LOW miles and I know it's history. Plus, I like my vinyl floor and long bed!

You can tell the door configuration just by looking at the rear Supercab windows. The 4 door versions have a "taller" window, and do not have a noticeable seal around the window. The 2 door Supercabs have a shorter window, with a noticeable seal around the window.

The flex fuel rangers don't tend to run as well on gas as they do on E85. Technically it should run fine on both but the computer programs they use tend to be tweaked to run on the E85 better.

I'm torn on the whole E-85 argument... on one hand it's cheaper than gas, on the other, it burns much faster, which means lower miles per gallon.

I looked at it again today, it's definitely a 2 door, still don't have a yes or no on jump seats.

Never knew that.

I used Valero once, and I will never use it again. My truck was shaking so bad and ran rough.
