I put 17gal in my stepside once... i'm pretty sure its a 19.5 gal tank.
Esp since there is no difference in the fuel tank skidplate for
stepside vs fleetside.
only reg cab, reg cab long bed, and supercab

WOW...I thought I drove like an *** sometimes but I guess not...all winter the lowest MPG I saw was 14 or so...and now I've been getting between 17-18 MPG...I definitely keep track of that and am intimately familiar with gas stations...I've had my Ranger for 1 year and 3 weeks and I'll turn 25,000 miles tomorrow.

From the information pages from the Ford dealership for all 2001 + 2002 Rangers that my dad and I picked up from the dealership while shopping for Rangers. Has all available options, packages and trim levels and what they can be equipt with...


Rangers with Flareside - 16.5 gallon tank in all trims.
Rangers with Fleetside - 19.5 gallon tank in all except for regular cab short beds, they get a 16.5. Regular cab long beds get a 20 gallon.

Those are from the print outs for those two specific years. While we were looking at a green xlt with a flareside the guy said the tank was smaller because of the bed slanting inwards. I remember this because my dad said a near 20 gallon tank seemed too small in a truck and the guy corrected him saying it was only 16.5 with the flareside.

Unless there is a special option to get a 19.5 gallon put in someway, it's 16.5. In a Ford bulliten I remember reading they said that all the tanks will be the same in upcoming years because they deleted the flareside. This was part of the STX intro.

I filled up today, put 17 gallons in my Stepside. Definately stepsides are 19.5 gallons. Doesn't matter what a brochure says, they are 19.5 gallons. Well, unless someones stealin my gas Maybe the singlecab ones don't though..?

My '00 4.0L OHV 4 DR with 4WD and 5 speed came with a 19.5 gallon gas tank.
Performed the following modifications:

Gibson catback exhaust, K&N FIPK Gen II, Taylor 8mm Spiro Pro sparkplug wires, BBK 66mm TB, Bama Program and changing the engine, differentials, and transmission to synthetic lubricants. Still saving my $$$ for a set of JBA headers.

My gas mileage varies 17-20 Hwy and 12-14 city.
My goal is to get 22 mpg which should be possible.
Generally I shift by or at 3000 RPMs which may be why my mileage suffers.....
