good little truck

2000 Mazda B-Series Pickup B3000 SE 2dr Extended Cab SB
I had a ranger before the mazda and they are about the same inside, look alikes by ford. Bought this little truck when gas was $4 a gallon and the astetics of the truck i like but i only get around 15mpg with it is a auto but my ranger 2.3 was around 20. I have to run supreme in mine or i get the "pinging" when i am on the highway. Was alittle disappointed in the lack of power in the 3.0. But i love the truck but i think i am going back to a diesel. Same mpg but bigger and the differance between supreme and diesel is about .10. Little sluggish on the hi-way. Overall i say that it is a good little truck for what it was made for. My dad road in the excab for 500 miles. he is tuffer than i am.
I like the shape of the body verses the ranger of the same year. THe mazda sets a little higher off of the ground, for a 2wd, than most other trucks.
little more room and better fuel ecomony. Power could be increased as well
