MPG and running costs

It may be a diesel, but the Ranger’s forte is not low fuel consumption – blame this on the Ranger’s kerb weight, cliff-like aero and knobby off-road tyres. On a brief motorway run, we saw MPG hovering in the mid-high 20s, with consumption only getting higher as speeds reduce, but then it’s not a particularly high priority for a car like this. 

Otherwise, those tyres will be expensive to replace, but being proper off-road units they will at least last a long time.
