Hi all, I have been using Fuelly since I bought my new truck in May last year.
I have a Ford Ranger T6 Wildtrak, with the 3.2L 5-cyl engine, and I live in Bangkok, Thailand.
Needless to say, fuel consumption is pretty horrible around town, but upcountry it's fantastic. Since I use the truck to drive across town to the office every day in Bangkok's legendary traffic, I am getting around 7km/l (16.5 US mpg, 19.8 imperial mpg) as an average - which I think is not bad.
In Thailand, the price of diesel is subsidised (presumably to help agriculture), and so it costs around 20% less than gasohol. This makes running a large truck pretty economical.
We have the new Ranger in the UK, it's huge, the bonnet line is level with my chest! I think the Isuzu with it's 2.5 TDI is more popular as it can tow over 7000lbs and can do over 40 MPG too, but the Ranger looks a nice truck.
Is the T6 the latest generation?
Yeah, the Ranger did beef up. Ford didn't release it here because it was encroaching on the F150 in terms of size. The Ranger we had hadn't changed in size much in well over a decade. It was the last true compact pick up in the US market. Everybody else's small pick up had been a midsize for awhile previous.
In the final years, the Rangers had an oversized Ford emblem on the tailgate. I think it is because Ford got tired of people assuming it was a Japanese model based on the size.
