Even tho it's a little truck it's still a truck, depending on the model you have some of them are good for nearly 1,500 pounds of people and cargo, so the first thing you should ask your self is if you need a truck like that? I've used my parents Ford Ranger for hauling and towing, including towing a trailer with my Commuti-car in it, sticking at 55mph I was able to average 25mpg, with the truck empty I can average around 30mpg going 60mph but I only drive it empty if it's going to be full on the return trip of course and because it's a truck I see no reason to drive over 60mph, most of the time 50mph or slower will get the job done and return the best mileage.
