Bone stock Ranger....

16 MPG about 80% highway.

EDIT: This last tank I've used all city driving. I rarely exceed 2,000 RPMS and usually just cruise at 40 MPH. After half a tank i've clocked 105 miles.

I just got 18mpg with 1/2 highway and the other 1/2 city while pulling a trailer and had the a/c on max the whole time and lots of idling with the a/c cranking. Everyone that gets in my truck lately says its like a freezer on four wheels but there is no way I am going to be sweating my *** off if i dont have to I dont care what the price of gas is or how bad my mileage is.

I just got gas last night. Right now I'm averaging 22 miles per gallon. I'd say about 75% highway and 25% city. I have a pretty light foot. Not bad in my opinion, guess having a 5-speed actually helps out. I even have four wheel drive.
