Default Re: Hows your GAS MILEAGE on ur truck? Let me know here.

How does the Ranger fuel mileage compare to the Explorer mpg of the same period using similar engines/power trains?
I believe the two vehicles are essentially the same frame and power train.

From the EPA:

2003 Ford Ranger Pickup 2WD 6 cyl, 4.0 L, Automatic 5-spd, Regular Gasoline
15 City 16 Combined 19 Highway


2003 Ford Explorer 2WD FFV 6 cyl, 4.0 L, Automatic 5-spd, Regular Gas or E85
14 City 16 Combined 19 Highway

EPA MPG link: http://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/bymod...emodelNF.shtml

I used to get 15 mpg in my 3.0 (Shes a bit old but still runs great), but after new plugs and wires + seafoaming i get about 19 with about 75-80% city driving

I just changed my fuel filter. My fuel filter had so much old gas/dirt that was clogged in there. And i cleaned my maf sensor. Now i should get some better mpg.

33/12.50s km2s 4.10s 4.0 moderate foot on the peddle. I'm getting 17. I could probably get more if I unloaded some weight from my truck and put my tire at the right psi and did an oil change.

Pure stock, 2.5L 5 spd manual, 215/75/14 with a 3.45 rear end with 106K on it and I get around 28 - 30 city and highway.

Been thinking about putting a AirAid spacer plate on it, anyone have any experience with them?
