My Scangauge II reported 28 to 33 mpg running 1600 rpm at 46 mph. This scangauge II is an excellent mod when it comes to increasing economy on the Ranger.

take your foot off the floor. seriously.

i can drive my truck like normal and get 16 mpg, or i can drive likea grandma and get 21 mpg.

your habbits with the truck, are direct connection to MPG. if you do 5 minute trips, you'll burn ALOT of gas quick.

Have you tried ANYTHING listed in this thread? It is easy for me to get 11-12 mpg. It is also easy for me to get 20 mpg. You just have to know how to do it.
