2WD 4cil rangers maybe aren´t big, powerful or faster.... but damn, they do a pretty god mileage for a truck that can be so verstile.
I thought all you Mexico guys had diesels.

Just filled up Wednesday, 18.7 mpg this time, almost went two weeks. I think with the winter being so mild I'm going to take out the 270 of sand and toss my summer rims back on. Washed up good yesterday.

with 31's and 4.56's i can hit 22mpgs on the highway if i drive conservatively.My city milage on the other hand is crap.In my trucks defence my commute to work is 1 mile so no time to really warm up and there is 6 stop signs and 2 blind intersections along the way.

I have a '96 with 166k that I am on my second tank of fuel with. The 1st tank before I changed the plugs, wires, and seafoam in the tank got mid 13's for strict in town mileage. That is about 270 and 18 gallons of fuel. I was pissed when that happened of course. So far I am just above a half tank and I have about 140 on the clock now. After this tank is done, I am changing the fuel filter out. I read I should pull the MAF and IAC and clean those out. I also read that keeping the tires inflated to near max would help. All of which, I will be doing after this tank of fuel. I will report back in the future.

Sadly we have diesels from nissan, mitsubishi, VW, but nothing yet from Ford on small trucks.

I heard that the new T6 platform is coming to México next yeay with a brand new diesel engine. You know.. im talking about the most covered topic of the last year " The new Ranger "

A little off topic, but I have heard a few guys swapped lightly modified VW 1.9 TDI four bangers into their Rangers... supposedly a good set up that yields good gas mileage and still gives you plenty of torque.

Or if you can work the logistics out, swap a Brazilian MWM turbo diesel from a native S-10 in that region. Supposedly those are real good engines as well.

Gotcha. I've been going back and forth over swapping in a 4BT Cummins or a 5 cylinder Mercedes into mine. The Mercedes would be more achievable.

Have a brand new 2011 extended cab XL stripper special with the 2.3L and 5-speed manual that we bought last weekend. On the vehicle's very first tank refill this morning calculated 27.4 mpg. That's with about 90% highway driving. Can't wait to see where that figure goes once the drivetrain loosens up a bit.

Disagree. There's plenty of legroom and headroom, even for my 6' 5" brother. No need for a 6000 lb crew cab full size for me.

My first tank in my 2011 XL was 27.1mpg with about 3/4 highway driving with mountains.

I usually average around 23-24 around home, mostly long 55-60 mph runs. Anything much over 65 and the millage drops off to 20-21. I've never checked the gearing but for what i use it for most of the time it works great.
