2011 supercab xlt 4X2, 2.3, 5spd

Driving about 80% highway and 20% city, I averaged 24.5 over the last 5 tanks. I shift between 2500 and 3000 RPM for conservation and drive the speed limit (70 max).

Just passing week one in the RedRNGR! Have a new appreciation for the truck I gave up to get this one, but I sure don't miss the payment. I'm getting 15mpg on all terrain tires, I think stock tires. Truck has 145K miles, is there any tunes I can do to improve mileage some?

I average about 21-22 mpg on the '98 and about 18 mpg on '11 with mixed driving. They're trucks, so that's not bad really. Even on my CR-V I see about 23-24 mpg. If you want to get better, you need to get a car. Shoving a brick shaped vehicle through the air is never going to get you the 30+ mpg a car will get.

EDIT: With the mpg revision posted in another thread concerning bigger tires and figuring out mpg, the CR-V is actually averaging 25.2 mpg. The '98 is averaging 21.1 and the '11 is 18.6.

I get about 18, thats after an alignment and new tires and wheels. I hit 20 on part of a long haul to houston going 50 on pretty much a flat highway.

haha very true. From what Ive seen rangers are getting pretty much the best mileage for a gasoline truck these days, except maybe for that new F150 eco-boost motor, those look sweet!

K&N filter and a flowmaster exhaust will do you good things, you could get a strong 18-19 mpg out of your truck

17-19 with my 2001 ranger completely stock cept for 235s. i still go to school so its a mix of city and hwy but if its 90% hwy i get around 21. at my next oil change im putting some that z-max engine formula i got a customer appriecation thing me and my boss went to. thinking about getting some lucas oil fuel injector cleaner to mix in for my next fill up hoping it will help a little along with changing my fuel filter.

also thats got a 3.0 vulcan in it but completely stock cept for the 235s

My engine is the 4.0....

So my mpg with new plugs is not even close to what I'm used to with my 1.6 liter b6 it hits a mighty 40-41 & 42 hwy.

My 1st tank of fuel in the ranger looks like an easy 12 - 16 mpg. But it's a truck!
Not a car. I will probably not do many road trips at that rate. Any pointers to improve it would be greatly appreciated. (link me to a thread would be kind enough)
