Holy old thread revival batman!
You have a problem, my 2.5 would hit the high 20's in mpg. Do you have a Service engine soon light? ALso check your air filter the 2.5 cracks the exhaust manifold and lets exhaust up into the intake through the hot air duct, band-aid is to remove that duct and stick some duct tape over the hole in the intake

Hi Guys:

Yep' I got one too. I chose to have it for the economy of the 4 banger. I have a gas guzzl'n modified classic truck already for fun so this is good enough. It carries my ATV instead of trailering it. I'm looking for a new tranny (5 speed) for it though.1993 2.5. Mine isn't in too good of health so I was wondering if there is anyone in the Toronto,Ontario area that has one that is in good shape for a reasonable price then maybe we could talk. Thanks
Willys
P.S. mine is getting 27MPG at the moment, Also would like to get an old 1982 or so truck too.:)
