Could be better. Right now getting a nudge over 20mpg each tank, which is somewhat expected but could still be better. see full Ford Ranger review

2009 4.0L 4x4 with Auto is just HORRIBLE for fuel mileage - all these trucks with the 4.0L are! Although the Ford Ranger has an excellent and proven track record for reliability and the new vehicle pricing was very competitive, I could have purchased a larger more expensive truck with a V8 and more features and by this time I'm sure that I could have broken even if you consider how much the Ranger has cost me in additional fuel costs. Although I'm confident that this little Ranger will last for years, I'm afraid that I will be trading it earlier than I would have wanted to find something that is not such a gas guzzler. see full Ford Ranger review

Ford needs to wake up to the cost of gas - All you can get now in a 4x4 is the 4.0L engine - That motor eats gas. Ford I want the option of a 3.0 L and even a 2.3L 4x4 see full Ford Ranger review

With todays gas prices I would have liked to have the option of a smaller motor. The 4.0L can really drink fuel see full Ford Ranger review

I average anywhere between 16 and 19 mpg, I believe that Ford could achieve alot better fuel economy out of a truck the size of a Ranger that doesnt even have a V8 see full Ford Ranger review
2003 2dr Extended Cab 6ft bed 207-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed manual 4WD, part-time w/low range
I averaged 15-16mpg in mixed driving during the summer. About 11-12mpg in the winter. On long trips I could get 18-20mpg, but the best I ever got out of it was 23mpg going down the I80 into California. see full Ford Ranger review
2002 4dr Extended Cab 6ft bed 207-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed manual 4WD, part-time w/low range
I would always like to get better gas mileage but considering mine is 4WD and has the larger engine, the gas mileage is not that bad. I would not want to give up power to get better gas mileage. I do feel Ford could improve on fuel economy. see full Ford Ranger review

Just completed a 7,000 mile trip, 2 adults & lightly, fully loaded bed. Best mileage 24 mpg, lowest 22 mpg. Typical town/freeway mix has been 22-23 mpg. Flat terrain, easy driving. see full Toyota Tacoma review

Even with the V6, the fuel economy hovers around 22MPG with mixed city/highway driving. A lot cheaper to refuel than a full size. see full Toyota Tacoma review

I thought the fuel economy, for a truck, was excellent. It gets 5mpg better than a Honda Ridgeline. see full Toyota Tacoma review

Fuel economy was close to the best for the class. I get around 27/mpg at highway speeds. see full Toyota Tacoma review

The 4 cyl specifically for a truck is great. According to my computerized Scanguage I am getting a consistent 21-25 mpg per tank with all around driving and commuting. 21 gallong tank. see full Toyota Tacoma review

At the time of purchase, it had the best gas mileage of all the small trucks I looked at. (Ford, Chevy, Mazda, GMC) see full Toyota Tacoma review

5-speed automatic 4WD, part-time w/low range
I get 21mpg in the warm months and only 18mpg in the winter. I use the 4wd a lot when roads are snowy or slippery. I had hoped for better gas mileage and find it ridiculous that there aren't better truck engines available from any of the manufacturers. A turbo-diesel four-cylinder would be much more practical in the Tacoma. see full Toyota Tacoma review

I expected better fuel economy for a small truck. But none of the trucks get good economy. The manufacturers need to get with the program on truck fuel economy. see full Toyota Tacoma review
