ford ranger

hello, i have a 2003 ford ranger xlt 2.3L 5spd automatic 2wd
my first tank of gas i got 23.33mpg. i stumbled upon gassavers.org and read the forums for a couple days and learned a few driving tricks and improved my mpg to 25 for the next 3 tanks. then i bought a scangauge2 and just filled up after a week of using the scangauge....26.3mpg this is 70% highway and 30% in town. i am shooting for 30mpg for a goal. thankyou everyone for the tips you have provided.

Welcome

Hey, Welcome to GS!

The Ford Ranger/Mazda B-series gets the best FE for its class -- especially with the 4-cyl, 5-speed.

Take a look at the busted and confirmed mods thread, try a few things, and let us know how things pan out. As always, we're here to answer any questions you might have. Best motoring!

every time I take a look under a pickup truck, I'm reminded if conversations about belly pans, I think if you could figure out a way to build a belly pan on a pickup truck you would see some amazing improvements.

Trucks have the largest room for improvement. And a few aero mods will help a bunch.
