my ranger is not a ''clunker''

since it's 2wd and 5spd 2.3 engine i miss being a 'clunker' by 2mpg's
they say it gets 20mpgs and the limit is 18 to get the rebate..
guess i'll have to keep it lol

According to that site, I should be getting 14 citty, 17 highway.

According to my log, my last 5 refills were are follows:
5/14 - 13.646 mpg
5/28 - 13.708 mpg
6/24 - 12.232 mpg
7/06 - 14.153 mpg
7/21 - 13.358 mpg

Those numbers are both city and highway. I've got an '03 4.0L 4wd.




The problem with that rebate program is that Obama "markets" the program as a eco-friendly program. The truth is (unfortunately I cannot remember my source, but it is reliable) that it uses up MORE energy just to take those "clunkers" and shred them versus having the general public buy "better" cars and trucks.

Wow... I just realized I've had my truck for about 3 months, and I've only refilled 6 times. The first time was a block away from where I bought it, and I didn't have a log made yet... besides, I wouldn't have known what the MPG of that tank would have been anyway.
