Looks like Ford is finally advertising...

I always see ads about the ranger, never ever mentioning the possible gas mileage. I was on ebay searchin blingN rims..when what did I see?



Good for Ford, 30 freakin MPG is nice!

You gotta admit your answer is funny....Or actually "Ironic".


But still, I think that Ranger's possible MPG is a good selling point nowadays. Because obviously everytime gas prices go up people's needs shift. And that ranger is a truck.

I think all vehicles at the dealership are expensive.

But oh well.

And it's not really hard to imagine a lil 4 cyl light pickup getting great gas mileage.

did you calculate the ratio of stocktires/35s tires to before gas/aftergas.


28 inch stock tires / 35 inch lifted tires= .8

So you're gas mileage of 15 mpg is actually 18 mpg. It's because every time your computer calculates you've driven 1 mile, it thinks you have stock tires. But in fact yours are larger and you're rolling further.

Yah, but even then, every vehicle is posting about freeway mpg. But I usually bike to school instead of driving. There's sometimes cute girls jogging in the morning on my bike ride.

ive been seeing this one commercial over and over again stating that it gets the best fuel mileage in it's class. are there any other trucks out there still considered a compact truck or a mini truck? i thought the Ranger was one of the only ones left.... if not, the only one left. Tacoma isn't still a compact truck, is it?
