Hey there I bought a new ranger almost a year ago and love it. I didn't know there was this much fan base for rangers its great. I commute 60 miles a day and it averages 28mpg!! But that's only got me curious on how much more I can get.

28mpg is very impressive. With some of the tweaks mentioned, you should have no problem pushing it into the mid 30's.
