Default Re: 3.0 vs 4.0 for comuting

I think it has a 20 gallon tank, being a fleet truck with alot of miles, I fought the company would want a small tank, having to fill up 5 times a day. Not like it mattets, i do mainly city driving so its not hard to find a station.

I Like my 3.0 but in all honesty get the 4.0 i get such crap in MPG i think i am getting 12-14 in TOWN! I get like 18 on the highway! My F-150 and my fiancee's Sporttrac get wayyyyyyyyyyyy better then the Ranger and they both have V8's WTF.

I just bought a 3.0 like 2 weeks ago...I've been getting 16.7 mpg. And thats WITH delivering (which is hell on a vehicle) When I'm not delivering, even in the city I'm getting like 18....and the 3.0, while not as fast as the 4.0, still has plenty of kick if you need to pass someone or something.
