Since your Ranger is pre-OBD2, it allows you to use all-mechanical engines if you would want to. There are some folks fitting Kubota stationary engines from refrigerated semi-trailers (ThermoKing) into Rangers and S10s, these engines can be had for cheap and deliver good mileage, around 30MPG (city) to 40MPG (highway). If you would also want to try WVO as an alternative fuel, it would return the investment quicker.
