Wow am I thankful for my 2001 4-cyl 2.5 ltr. 28 mpg highway, and average with 75/25 city/hwy is 24 mpg (averaged from 20+ readings). It's better that way in Connecticut, where the average gas price is still around $2.50 as of Nov. 1

Hey, I hit 92 mph the other day on a straight stretch of highway - not bad for a meagerly powered Ranger

On RPS forums there's been a lot of discussion about winter gasoline. Could it perhaps be you noticed the drop in gas mileage when the stations started using winter gasoline? This could account for a couple MPG, just a thought.

Im in process of doing a tune up on my 1998 2.5 5speed.I was getting around 29 or so with nothing but highway driving and then i stopped checking it.Started checking it again and was getting 15.So after plug wires (needed badly) plugs (needed really badly) and some other things ill get back with ya on whether or not the milage goes back up.

I have a 96 ranger xl automatic and average like 12-14 mpg in the city, I gun-it though alot so that could be the problem. When I don't gun-it I get like 14-15mpg I though I got that fuel milage due to the heavy truck frame that forces the 2.3 sohc engin to work harder. I have stock 14 inch tires on mine.

in my 97 2.3l 4 banger, I got 18-19mpg, and that was with 31" tires, driving nutty. 15 is DEFINITELY too low for your engine. i'm getting 15 in my 3.0 v6 currently :oP
