Question about 1998 Ford Ranger SuperCab
This isn't unusual for an engine that is tight compression-wise but higher mileage.
If friction is low, and the cooling system good, this reduces the amount of heat resulting.
I use a molybdenum-based oil additive and it brings friction down (and mileage up) enough so that a car I owned some years ago used to drop substantially (dropping 2/3 of the uncalibrated gauge) rolling down a long slope during the commute to work. This happened after the engine passed through 150,000 miles.
