If it is a clogged fuel injector, then yes it works. Its my opinion i had a 95 ranger with a clogged fuel injector. Took it to the ford place and thats what they said, and it cost abunch of money to fix a fuel injector. I had a friend that works at the ford place and he told me too use this, and what do u know, once i used this it was like the fuel injectors were brand new, so in my opinion it does work.

I would also suggest seafoam. However you only have 40K on the truck so it may not have a lot of gunk built up.

I bet it's been pretty cold in the mornings, huh?

That sounds fine to me when you combine the warm ups in the morning, to maybe sitting at certain points with the truck running (maybe when you get to work early or something).

My truck normally gets about 18-20 highway in the spring/summer/fall, but right now I'm getting about 13-16.
