way back when, I had a F-150 with the 302 and auto, my father had a F-150 with the 300 Six and same OD trans. Make sure your overdrive button works and that your tachometer drops some RPMs when you push the button. There should be a little light on the transmission shifter right by the OD button. EPA mpg for both were 14/18 and 12/17. The 302 was smoother but didn't have any more power than the 300. It wasn't a bad trade for 5% more fuel economy.

Make sure it's tuned up, new plug wires, distributor cap and plugs. Run plugs one heat range cooler. Clean the fuel injectors and get new fuel filters. Get timing set to specs. Get a tonneau or fastback bed cover. Put taller tires on it.


Buy a Ranger with a 5 speed and the 2.3 four. 30 mpg on the highway easily and you can do the same things above for better MPGs.
