10 mpg
 
Hi It Seems that no matter what I try I cannot get better than 10 MPG.on my 2013 5.7 hemi crew cab. I have tried keeping the rpm's at around 1000. not going over 40 mph for all most 8 hrs of driving,cruising on the FWY at 60 MPH for mile after mile. Still get 10 MPG.
I have a cold air intake, plus a Magna Flow Cat back system. What gives..

I had an issue with poor gas mileage after an oil change, the awesome techs put in 10w30, made my gas mileage go down to 13. I drained a quart and added some lucas oil treatment. Mileage went back up to 18 avg.

Your poor mileage is because your truck is a Ford Raptor. You should go trol.. err ask your question in a Ford forum but they'll just wonder why you bought a Raptor if you're worried about mileage.

you'll all be disapointed with your new Ram Trucks. I had 2013 full load Laramie. Sold it and went for a Ford Raptor. Far too many issue's with the 2013 Ram. This was the Fourth Ram I have owned, it was the worst. You've been warned.

I just sold my 2013 Ram 1500 Laramie. It was not a good truck. I bought a 2013 Ford Raptor. Way Way better.

OMG this ford dealer is not even smart enough to create a new login to spread his lies. Or has he (Sblann)? Take a photo of the screen and show us!

Sorry to disapoint you guy's But I ended up keeping my 2013 Dodge Ram, inspite of all it's short comings. I still have issues with the overall package.

Get a life buddy, nothing better to do with your time?

My 2013 ram laramie gets 11L/100kms. Not sure what that converts to in mpg but I think it's pretty good. Its also 100% stock. No problems with it.
