I hadn't driven my big truck for quite a while and decided to drive it during the long Thanksgiving weekend. Not for very long, and only because I couldn't fit my wargaming miniatures in the cab of the Ranger. Some interesting information comes to light with my new skills/alertness/experience from this site: With the tires pressed up to max sidewall this thing coasts for a VERY long time, much longer than the Ranger does. On my route home I have a series of hills that I drive over. With the Ranger I get to 55 at the bottom of the first hill, then coast the rest of the way home (about half a mile). With the Ram I only need 50 mph. At the top of the second hill the Ranger would be at 45, and the Ram at 35, but getting to the next intersection is all downhill and both trucks are at 35 there. I still have a lot of work to do in knowing what speed to get up to so that I don't use the brakes at my drive, but the Ram gets there at 27 mph and the Ranger at 25. If I drove this often, I think I could break the highway EPA (gas fuel) while using E85! The new/old EPA stadards are (city/hwy/cmb): new gas: 13/17/14, old gas: 14/19/16, new E85: 8/12/10, old E85: 9/13/11. Heck, pre-hypermiling I matched the new EPA combined while towing with E85. 57 mph is only 1500 rpm. I know there are people here that would kill for that to gearing. However, it is difficult to get it to lock into 5th gear for DWL. On the up side of that, 4th gear is still something people on here would kill for: 55 mph at 1700 rpm. Unfortunately 3rd gear runs around 2K rpm for 50 mph, and anytime I go from N to D if automatically chooses 3rd to start with. It will switch to 4th pretty quickly after that, but I hate that time in 3rd. I think I can, with some more work, keep it below 2K rpm for the bottom 4 gears and 1500 for 5th. I almost wish I drove it more often, but I don't think I can match the ~30 mpg I am getting out of the Ranger yet. It's not a vehicle I drive often, and was bought for a specific purpose. However, I think it could be hypermiled very effectively (only when looking at & of EPA). I could only wish that many other vehicles had designs that could be hypermiled as effectively. I think this truck could easily get double EPA with a SG and P&G, though Pulsing in 5th gear really isn't possible.
