Proud of my ranger

Saturday my father and I went to St. Louis drove the truck up there

Left with a full tank of gas time I got to the parking lot of the ball game I still had 1/4 tank of gas.

I didnt want to fill up in St. louis I went ahead and headed home stoped in Eureka Mo. about 30 miles from St. louis I was just a tad under 1/4 tank by then

I figured my gas milage up and I got around 21 mpg
That was all interstate driving 75mph

Im not sure how big my tank is. so this may be off cause I dont know how many miles I could have got with what was remaining before I filled up

Not bad at all I think

I dont get people crying of gas prices and stuff. Goverment said slow down to 55 and save avg. of 23% I was getting passed doing 75 by suv's and large gas guzzling trucks

Man my truck is a hog i guess. I've yet to pull more than like 18 with 31s and 4.10s. Maybe i should try 75 instead of 65-70 lol

my motor must be getting broken in. normally i'd get 440-460 kms per tank (100/ 1/4 tank average). this tank, i'm at 300 and i've still got half a tank left. i try to make my tanks last 2 weeks. so far 6 days, 1/2 tank and 300 later.
