Incorrect Gasoline Mileage

I have a Ford Ranger which delivers very good gasoline mileage. when I bought it in 2005 it had been a repo and everything on t6he left side had to be replaced(must have had an accident or something) I tested the mileage. The truck through successive tests had- 27 miles to the gallon in town-stop and go driving- and 36 miles to the gallon on the open road! When I saw the mileage on the new Ford Ranger of 22/27 I decided to keep my old truck

Check the frame before you do. Mine rusted through at 95,000 miles.
