just hit 118 last week. With 30's and extra weight in the bed for traction i'm averaging 20mpg and its more 60 city 40 highway now that i have to drive to work every day.

2.3L, 223k. Honestly don't know the gas mileage, don't know what size the tank is, gas gauge is broken, and I'd rather not run the risk of running out to find out. But the guy who sold it to me says it does about 18 MPG, I would at hope that's at least the minimum I'm getting.

98 2.5L 5-Spd 92K miles or at least that’s what it shows, don’t know if it’s the original engine. Looks like it was a company work truck.

Just got it last weekend so I don’t know what MPG to expect, but looking at what everyone else’s gets it should be pretty good.

Many 4 cylinder Rangers show half a million or more miles on the original engines... mine has a long, long way to go...

'92 2.3L 5 spd. 2wd, EFI, near 200,000 miles still runs good. Lots of new parts over the years, none internal to engine. Only gets 15-17 city mpg. Hauls stuff for a charity every week.

Odometer crapped out at 139185 about 4 years ago, so I'm guessing over 200000. 95' XLT, great little truck.
