What kind of gas mileage do you usually get? Tell your engine and vehicle.

My 1990 Ranger 2.9L V6 usually gets around 15mpg. But now in the winter it's getting around 12 or 13.:bawling:

My credo
built, not bought
my '93 4.0 ohv with the 5 speed manual, stock 235-15 tires, 3.73 gearing, cap & totoal weight of 4,300 pounds has got a best ever of 19.5 , gets 17-18 most of the time, 15 in town, winter milage drops drastically for many reasons, winter blend fuel, longer engine warm-up times, resistance of cold driveline fluids, hubs being left locked-in, ect. id say i get 15 at the very best in winter, heck i dont even use 5th gear in the winter because of carrying extra weight in the back for when in it snows.

Last fill up was 17 mpg. Kind of surprised me as I have 350 lbs of sand in the back and idle my truck a little longer since it's winter. My truck has a 4.0 OHV with 5 spd manual and it's a 2wd supercab. I am running 215/75/15 passenger car tires at 40 psi with stock 3.08 gears. Speedo is slightly off when I changed from 215/75/14 or was it 215/70/14? I can't remember. Was slightly off before because stock 2wd tire size is 225/70/14.
