part of me feels like you just got lucky w' your truck

for every 15 rangers I hear getting between 14-19mpg, there's 3-4 that break 20 and 1-2 that get high 20's (or even 30)

about 80-85 and I have 4.10's only reason I get that mileage is because of the programmer. If I didn't have that i'd be around 20hwy. I was also running the a/c full blast and it was about 90 out. I'm thinking if temps were around 60-70 and didn't run a/c and ran around 70 I could probably push 26.
