Icon6 Hello from southern Indiana

This looks like a great place to swap info and get repair tips.
My 03 FX4 level II is a great truck but the gas millage realy sucks, not a good daily driver for long commutes. but for off road use you can't beat it for a stock struck.

why are you running premium? there is no advantage unless your engine is tuned for that.

rangers are programmed to run on 87 octane.

Howdy! Welcome to our little corner of the net. I have 32's and get about 19.5 mpg, but I also have an intake, exhaust, and a tuner. I am running on 87 too.
