It does not have the Flex Fuel Option but it does great on regular gas mileage. On an average trip to work you are only spending $4.27 on a twenty five mile trip. You can go up to 312 miles on a tank of gas. Coming in at a tie, Ford Ranger Pick up, another standard transmission. you are going to get the same high way miles of 21 miles per gallon in city and a astounding 26 miles per gallon on highway.

Gas mileage trucks do not have to always be in the mini model. Out of the Standard Size Trucks the winner of the best gas mileage is a tie. Getting 16 miles per gallon city and a whooping 20 miles per gallon highway, the Mitsubishi Raider Pickup which is a 2WD, and the Dodge Dakota which is another 2WD. On an average trip of twenty five miles in the Dodge Dakota you will be spending less than six dollars. Using only 1.47 gallons. On this tank of gas you can go 337 miles with a 22.0 gallon tank.
