As of 6/21/2005 (the last time I updated my spreadsheet):

MPG: 16.93 (average), ~14 (low), ~20 (high)

I don't really compute best or worst, and because of the way I figure mileage, I sometimes end up w/ really weird numbers (I have a 1.491 MPG followed by a 58.64 MPG!! because I did a partial fillup one day). Looking through my list I'd say my worst got down to the ~14 MPG mark last winter and got as high as ~20 MPG this summer. This last summer I significantly altered my driving behavior and have since been seeing 18-19 MPG reliably for the last few tanks. My average for the last 6 fillups was 19.2 MPG.

Engine Size: 4.0L
Gear Ratio: 4.10
Tire Size: 31x10.5x15
Auto vs 5speed: 5-speed manual

The truck is also a super-cab FX4 LII, basically the heaviest Ranger imaginable.. The engine/intake/exhaust/etc is 100% stock.

More interesting statistics:

As of 6/21 I had had the vehicle for 736 days (2.77 years), had driven 26432 miles at a cost of $0.12/mile. I had pumped 1612.891 gallons of gas at a cost of $2869.01. On average I went 6.13 days between fillups. I used 2.191 gal of gas per day of ownership at a cost of $3.90 per day of ownership.

Yes because you have a motor with more then enough power to push it around and you have 3.08's and its manual. However as soon as you change your gears to 3.73 it'll probably drop closer to 15-16. I'm guessing you probably do mostly highway style driving which would explain how your getting 18+. From most the people I know with 5.0 stangs they get around 15-16 in city stock and around 19 highway.

I just filled up. Pumped 12.786 gal w/ 248 mi showing on the trip. That works out to ~19.4 MPG for the last week and a half (last fillup was 9 days ago). Not too shabby in my experience. FWIW, some of those miles were pulling an 8' utility trailer. Trailer and truck bed were loaded w/ building supplies. It seems having a few hundred lbs of load doesn't really seem to effect mileage much at all..
