Default what kinda MPG are you getting?

Just curious, especially for y'all XLT 2wd 3.0's out there. Assuming the tank holds what I was told (16.5 gallons?) im getting roughly 16 MPG stock! I made sure to not have a lead foot unless absolutely needed, driving fairly soft and everything.

Possible solutions that don't cost $500 (like a bed cover)?

fill up ur tank, reset your trip odometer, drive, fill up again and take ur trip miles and divide that by how much gas u just put in

I just filled it up full, set the odometer back to zero, drove tell roughly empty and divided the miles I drove by how many gallons it holds. Guess so

Default Re: what kinda MPG are you getting?

not how many gallons it holds....by how many gallons you put IN your tank....(after fillin up)

because you dont go to empty everytime (still could have a few gallons in ur tank) and u would have an incorrect mpg

It's been discussed before but I'll post it for anyone that doesn't know. Reg cab short bed has 16.5 gal tank, Reg cab long bed has a 20 gal tank, Extended cabs have a 19.5 gal tank.

Default Re: what kinda MPG are you getting?

I'm getting 18mpg all city driving very easy on the pedal and never take it above 2500 RPMs pretty good for a 19 year old kid delivering pizza... my old 96 ranger 3.0 5 speed got 23 mpg mixed highway and city that was the best i could get out of it.. so you just need to watch those rpms and watch the hard braking.

----------

i think 18mpg city for a 3.0L ranger is good idk what highway it i'm guessing i could get 23mpg highway which for a truck that is as reliable as a ranger its a small sacrafice to make. my friend has a 4.0 2010 sport ranger he gets 15-17 mpg he hates the mpg
