Just filled up today ($65) and got about 17.5 mpg with the last tank full.
05 4.0 4x4

The worst I ever got was 12 mpg in the winter when it was really cold.

16-18 city/20s highway


When i first got my truck i was only getting like 13 to 14 so i replaced the spark plugs, the wires, pvc valve, fuel filter and air filter so i'd say that helped my mileage a bit

Worst tank was 14.3, best tank was 24.4, most recent tank was 16.2 (new exhaust, had to "clean" out the old carbon).

I've been getting a steady 19.8 lately in the Ranger.

Worst tank in the Dodge was 14.5, best tank was 20.6, most recent was 16.5.

That was getting a steady 17.5. Tune up and oil change soon.

My stock Ranger (4.0L 4x4 with auto) get 15.6 mpg (City), and 17.3 MPG (50/50 mix).

NOTE: City has a few fun acceration moments, and highway is 60-75 mph.

i dont run much city, but its around 16 mpg and i average about 19.5 on highway.

i run mostly all highway since i live outside of town, i average about 320 miles a tank with a little extra fuel left to make it to my spot, i fill up sunday night and drive all week till friday morning when i stop at krogers fuel and get a dollar off a gal. so i try to schedual fill ups.

i also carpool to work with my buddy, i drive one week and he drives the next. so that saves me about $120 a month
