2002 v6 ford ranger gas milliage?

http://maine.craigslist.org/car/720993169.html
Looking into this ranger, guy sent me some pics of it looks very nice. clean, low miles and a really good asking price. My question is what would this truck get for gas milliage vs my 95 4cl ranger that I have now? thanks would it be alot worse? I get about 28-30 now.

It depends on YOUR driving style. Are you a lead foot? or do you drive nice and easy? 28-30 mpg is really light on the gas pedal.

With my 3.0 auto and 32s with 4.10 gearing I get good gas mileage. Last tank I got 18.5 with all city driving. If I really push it and do most highway I can get 22 but that takes a lot of work.

It's all about driving style. I have almost the worst Ranger from the factory for mileage...4.0 liter automatic 4x4 with 4.10 gears. I get about 18 city and about 21 highway because I'm light on the gas pedal and never put my toe into that gas pedal unless I need to get up to speed. Highway, I go no higher than 65.

Just take it easy. Save the power for the woods.
