I just got back from a trip with my '98 Ranger with the 4.0L and a
stick. At 70 mph, all highway, it got 22.5 mpg. At 57 mph, all
highway, it got 26 mpg!!! It averages 18 mpg the way I drive, but
this weekend it really kicked a**.
Guess I shoulda got the 4 liter; my 3 liter with auto on my 4x2 ranger gets
14.5 local and 21 max on the Highway. Next time!

I know this has been a long time in coming to an answer, but
hey, I had to install a tach first. Based on RPMs at the same
speed for a pair of gears, fourth known to be direct, I get
This is '92, 3.0, 2wd, standard cab, short bed, 3.45 axle. With
215/70 x 14 tires and this axle, I should get 22.4 mph/1000 rpm
in 4th; at 45 mph, I do. I checked 3rd against 4th at 45, 2nd
against 3rd at 30, and 1st against 2nd at 20 to calculate the
ratios, then watched what happened as I shifted between
4th and 5th at 65 to get the ratio for 5th.
By the way, these tests told me the speedometer reads about
10% low in the 60 - 75 range; I always wondered why everyone
else was driving so slowly.
I assume this to be the Mazda R1 transmission, though I've not
crawled under the truck to look for the ID tag. Your 2wd '91 is
probably the same transmission. This does not mean that your
gearset will be the same as mine. In other transmission families
(e.g. T-5) gearsets often differ depending on engine size, car
weight, and expected pattern of use.

Subject: Power Steering Question
I recently purchased a 94 Ranger XL and it does not have power steering. I
was hoping to add this myself by purchasing the unit off a wrecked truck.
Does anybody here know how hard this would be and how much needs to be
replaced. I'm hoping to do it myself but am not sure at all what the job
entails. Any info would be appreciated.
