I had the same problem exact problem years ago with a purple ranger 3.0. I would use half a tank of gas pegged at 55, slowing on the smallest hills. I had the cat replaced. I had the fuel pressure reg tested to see if it is leaking raw fuel into the engine. Then I had my injectors replaced also, then it ran like a champ.

What about the cat converter. It could be pluged or slightly pluged.
