I came back to find 12 pages of active topics since Thursday afternoon! Anyways, I drove to Kansas and back to visit a friend. On my first tank of gas, I managed 364 miles with the 16.1 gallon tank, averaging 22.6MPG, but also considering the tank was not empty when I refilled it, nor did I have any sort of low fuel warning. I think I could have managed 23 MPG, but that would be on fumes.
On the way back I hauled, but still managed 311 miles and I have a quarter of a tank left. Not back for the 3.slow and a truck with a big heavy cap on the back.
2010 4.0 SOHC Ranger XLT 4x4
Bucket seats, center console, OHC, Mustang dome light, LEDs, Linex bedliner, Leer cap, stepbars, skid plates, rear hitch
im lucky to get 280 before my check light comes on. too scared to see just how far i can push it.
i bet the topper has something to do with it too.
Well, I generally try to cruise around 70-75 MPH. I run the EATC at 74-75 degrees F and put the cruise control on while listening to tunes. I would like a tonneau cover as opposed to the huge cap, but the cap does allow for more cargo space.
When I had my 99 XLT it had a 20 gallon tank I think. I was able to squeeze around 430 miles average out of that truck.
I drive 25 miles 1 way to work, majority of it that is interstate, rushhour...constrction. it would suck to run out of gas there.
im thinking of buying a yamaha vino and putting death metal stickers on it, or camoclad.
I'm lucky to get over 17mpg on my truck!!! I get 15 when I have the tires satnding up in the back.
Well, I have a 2WD and the 3.Slow. Both contribute to increased MPG. The fact that I also have the crappy stock tires helps some as well as my driving style, which is get to the speed I wish to cruise at, trim it up, and then leave things alone.
