I just purchased an explorer and i dont know what good gas mileage is on one of these. So lets start a poll.

On averege, how many miles does your explorer get on a full tank, if its a V8 just specify.

It also makes a difference 2 door or 4 door.

Please use the search feature and you'll find literally hundreds of mileage threads.
 






I have a 97 2 door Sport, 4.0 OHV with the five speed auto trans and I get 14 mpg city:(
 






99 4DR V8 - 12mpg to 13mpg
 






94 4 door, 33 inch tires= 240 mile to a tank=15mpg

lucky you! (must be those 3.73s!)

on my 93 sport, 5-speed, 4x4, 32" tires, i get 11-13mpg. before i out the 32s on i got 15-18mpg. 3.27 gears

BUT the old 91 4-de eddie got 17/21 religiously, and it had 160k on it...it was an auto and 4x4. 3.55 gears

gearing has alot to do with it too.
 






97 , 2 door, 4.10 gearing, 4x4 i get an average of aprox 17.8 mpg and thats about 75% city
 






I get around 12 mpg around the city in my 1993 with the 3.73 LS, but I just replaced my thermostat and hoses and I'm hoping for a 2 mpg gain, but I have a feeling I'm being a bit too optimistic.
 






2 door, 3.27 gears, 5 speed, 18 mpg city and thats with my HEAVY right foot.
 






35" tire + 4.56 gears = 14 MPG :D
 






Stock 4-dr SOHC with no junk inside to add weight- 16 mpg average. :)
 






98, 2wd, 4 Door, V8, 33's, 4.56 gears. About a little over 200 miles per tank. So about 11 MPG
 












My '96 can get up to 22mpg on the highway. It's mostly stock. Now since my thermometer is stuck open, my gas mileage dropped to about 16 mpg, sometimes less on the highway. In city driving, I get anywhere from 10mpg to 15mpg depending on my driving "technique". :p
 






i havent checked the gears, but my auto 4dr mountaineer gets about 9.3 in town, it must have something wrong??:(
 






when I was stock, I got about 21 on hwy. Since I put the 35's on and changed the gears, I get about 14 on the hwy.
 






98 XLT 5.0 15MPG CITY/18-19 MPG HIGHWAY-70MPH
 






94 4 Door. 5.5" suspension lift, 33" MudTerrains, stock gears, 140k miles, A HUGE 11MPG HIGHWAY.
 






98 EB 2WD, 4.10s, 4.0 SOHC, 17 City/ 21 Hwy
