for all you ford ranger drivers

I was wanting to know if any of yall have ford rangers. Once I pay off the truck I was going to get a small car. Then I thought of the rangers since they are “small trucks” What do you get in millage? Please list the tranny setup, year, body style, and mpgs you get.

i have a 97 mazda b2300...same exact thing as the ranger..actually all the parts are ford..its a reg cab short bed, 2wd, power nothing..get like 28 mpg. change the oil and thats it. ive had it for the last 5 years..it was my cousins truck before that..i got it with52k on it and i now have 93k. not a SINGLE problem from it. i just put new tires, shocks, fuel filter, thermostat, plugs wires...runs like a champ..only thing i wish it was an extended cab. reg cab in that thing feels like your driving on the dash..especially after riding in the superduty

Ranger

Had an 07 Extended cab with the 4.0L v6, manual and 4x4. Got 19-20mpg religously, uphill, downhill, loaded or not, cruise control or not, didn't matter. Even added cold air intake, exhaust and synthetic oil. Bumped up to 21mpg. Not worth the upgrades at all. But the truck ran perfect and was real comfortable to drive.

4" Straight Pipe / Gauges (Pyro, Boost)
Wicked Wheel / Wg delete / Boost fooler
Tymar intake / Zoodad Mod / NChornet CCV mod
Hpx Crossover / Fuel CCK / ITP prepump tank mod
FPR Shim w/ underhood gauge
AIH Delete / Non Ebpv pedestal w/ valve delete
TW 6 position chip (will never own another canned toon)
3.73's / 6 speed manual 4x4
Still messin with it

I've got a 2000 ranger. Reg cab short box. 2.5L 4cyl automatic. I get about 22mpg... I wish it was a standard tranny, it would do better, but what I like about it is its a bullet proof little truck, hardly nothing ever goes wrong with them and if it does they're easy to fix and work on unlike a lot of compact cars.
