Fuel Prices / 3.0 Powerstroke 4 Cylinder

The trend seems to be higher fuel prices, the only way to combat burning through fuel is get a more fuel efficent daily driver or run WVO. Check out this Ford ranger 3.0 Liter Powerstroke 4 cylinder, I average 32 MPG Highway and 28 City.

I use the F-250 for hauling big loads and use the ranger when I have smaller loads to haul. 10-12 MPG at $4.00 per gallon in this day and age is just insane.

My DD is a 99' s10. 4 banger 5 speed. It gets about 25-27 mpg.

What country do you live in By the way. Never seen a diesel ranger, but I would buy it in heart beat.

I would love a smaller truck with a diesel, but they aren't sold in the U.S. yet.

So, my DD is my truck when it rains or is really cold. Otherwise its the motorcycle for 50mpg!

He lives anywhere except North America. Look a Navara (frontier), Hilux (tacoma) and even a ford transport. When I was living in Europe for work, all the fords had turbo diesels. I can't honestly say I can pinpoint 1 reason we don't allow more diesels here in NA, but its regulations, big oil, government, they just aren't.

I was reading some of the initial problems with the 2003 PSD was USA's diesel gas was to a lower standard than Europes was, and the Powerstroke was designed in Europe with way cleaner diesel.

I honestly probably wouldn't own a F250 as a DD, in any city. I live in rural Montana, and its my backup, I use a 08 gasser F250 as my regular truck, its my tow rig.
