OK, random old thread, but while we are on the topic, why is gas still so expensive? Have they given any reason? Oh well...

holy old thread batman...blah blah..

gas is never going to get much cheaper

fossil fuels are a limited resource, and while there's enough to go around right now, too many people are profiting from its usage, so it's not going to be $0.99/gallon anymore

and unless you have a 2wd, 4-cyl, around 4 out of every 5 rangers suck for gas mileage...you can keep the truck light, keep the gas pedal up, coast down hills, keep the tires inflated, make sure all your parts are all in correct order, turn the a/c off, but it it'll make a difference of 2-3mpg at most (and that's only if you floor it all the time to begin with)

All I have done so far is cut off the bottom of my airbox to get more air in. I have a 2002 extended cab with the 4.0 engine and it took it from 19 mpg to 23 mpg on average. I may put in an aftermarket filter and housing later on similar to K&N but I don't have the funds right now. I hope that will help you out or at least think about it.

I've noticed that my MPG has gone down by 2 since the rainy season started as i have to always have the defroster on. Was getting around 25-28 this summer, now i'm down to 22-24, and i just got new bigger tires so i fully expect that to go down to around 20. Still not bad for a truck, most cars i'd want to own get worse gas mileage hahaha.
