From reading the posts concerning the topic of MPG; the stock 4.0L SOHC appears to get better gas mileage than the OHV by at least 4 mpg. The 4x2 appears to get about 2-3 mpg more than the 4x4 version.
The previous post states a average of 25.6 mpg.... Even with all the modifications I have done to my '00 Ranger 4.0L 4x4 5 spd; the best I have received is 19 mpg....
Maybe if I do the E-fan installation.... I might break 20 mpg, but I suspect the electric fan running will create MORE interference with my HF radio that I already have with the fuel pump running and the ignition...
Reducing the RF interference has been an on going project with small improvements...
Fords are NOTORIOUS for vehicle RF interference !!!!
Anyone have experience with the electric fan creating more RF interference problems ???
How much of an increase in MPG have you received after the electric fan installation ???
