Yeah this is the first time I’ve felt like my switch from BB to BD was a bad move. I’ll get over it but I’m scratching my head a bit.Most of this falls in with my expectations but I still find it hard to believe that my 2dr 2.3 Black Diamond gets only 1 mpg better than a 4dr 2.7 35” tire Wildtrak.
Is 23 gallons the standard F150 tank size? I'm spoiled with 36 gallons. 650+ miles on a tank.400 miles on the highway on a good day. (20gal × 20mpg = 400). F150 with same engine = 23gal x 24mpg = 552 miles range.
Of course, on the interstate at 79mph I'm getting 20 mpg now. What will a geared-down Bronco be at 75mph
I didn't say it proved any point and generally agree, but it is not always the case. When I got my Mazda some of my friends (and the Toyota salesman) said it was really a Ford and would fall apart. Didn't happen, in fact its the o
wow. Ecobust. I have looked at a 4X4 Ranger. 4X4 F150. And this doesn’t make sense. I knew the 35 inch mud tires were going to hurt my mileage. A base 2.3 which 3.73 gears and smaller tires should get better than this. there is no way a ice/gas engine can get the same mileage around town and on the hwy. If you are stopping and going you will get worse mileage than the hwy. Something is bad wrong about this chart. I did talk to the guys at 5 star tuning. They said the 2.3 will pickup 75hp/75tq. 2.7 100/100 with 93 octane and pickup over a mile per gallon on rangers and F150. I’m guessing with the extra power in culmination of the big tires/friction/gears broncos may pickup more mileage than the ranger and F150. Let’s hopeVia Bronco Nation
