That is definately rough mileage man. I just got 17.8 on my last tank with a BL and 33's with 4.10 and a 4.0 and there were two trips to the mud on that tank so it was abused a bit. Normally I get 19 or so in the city.

Could be some issue with your IAT sensor, maf is dirty, O2's aren't functioning optimally even though you have no CEL, cat's are clogging. Lot's of possibility's because of the age.

also good to do the fuel filter as part of a tune up, most of the stuff i do at work doesn't apply to rangers ex:cap and rotor, flame trap, etc.

oh ya forgot about that guy, maybe its because i hate changing that ******* thing, never fail to drink a ton of gas and usually end up with the wrong filter(make sure you tell them if its a flex fuel or not!!!!! or else you will take it all apart for nothing.....)

so i used to have bad milage but thn i decided to do something about it... i bought one of thoes tornado fuel manager things... it forces the air in your intake hose to become a tornado making the air denser and.. in turn forcing more air into your engine.
then i got lucas fuel system cleaner... used 3 oz.s for about 5 tanks and now i get 17 mpg city... im pretty proud :)
