I 've been a Ford person for years. I have owned 3 1969 Mustangs, 1978 Bronco, 1980 F-150, 1981 Ford Courier(Mazda), 1982 Ford F150 4x4, 1988 Thunderbird Turbo-Coupe,1994 F350 4x4, 2000 F350 Crew Cab 4x4, 2001 Ford Taurus, 2001 Mazda B3000(Ranger), 2002 Ford Excursion 4x4, 2003 Ford Ranger Edge, and 2005 Mustang. All were purchased new except for the 69's. The Ranger is my daily driver and I drive about a 100 miles a day on it around Austin but when it comes to fuel mileage it sucks bad averaging 12 mpg. I guess I should have known about that since my B3000 only got 14mpg. But my Excursion averages right at 15mpg but it's a diesel. Diesel here is about $0.10 more than unleaded. Anyway the point I'm making(or trying to make) is that Detroit needs to improve their gas mileage on all of their products and not use these figures they pull out of their a$$e$. My Ranger has never come close to their mpg numbers. How do they get these numbers? In a vacuum, downhill, dropped out the back of a plane, with nothing on the frame of the truck. When you spend $55.00 every 2 days on fuel for 220 miles. There's a problem and until they increase legitimately they will lose out to the ricers.
