confused 02 Egde 3.0L Gas Mileage

I have a '02 ranger edge, auto, 2wd, all stock, and when I first got it, I was getting about 20 mpg and I then had an oil leak, so I took it to the dealership and and they had to remove the engine for some reason to fix the leak and now I get only about 14 mpg...Does anyone know a reason for this?

Re: 02 Egde 3.0L Gas Mileage

well since nobody else wants to talk to you i will.
14 mpg is really low for a small vehicle i know people who get 16-18 mpg in a fullsize f-150 4x4 with V8.
i say 20 or better should be about right but those numbers are found on the web to know exactly what it should be from the factory.
i'll have a look asap and get back to you with a good number.

i would rather push my Ford than drive your Chevy !

Re: 02 Egde 3.0L Gas Mileage

cheetah if you have to fill up every week you got some serious problems too.
its hard to say what the problems are that you guys have but things as simple as a bad O2 sensor will increase the fuel consumption.
i have no idea where to tell you to start looking !
