Default HELP!!!! Fuel Mileage Issues!!

I have a 2013 Express Crew Cab 2wd with about 98500 miles on it. When I first got the truck in 2015 I had 54700 miles on it and if I drove it right no speeding and no hot rodding I could easily get 17 in the city and 21/22 on the highway. Well at 89000 miles the cam went out in the truck and they had to rebuild the top end of the motor (thank god under warranty). Since then I have not been able to get it back to that and today it does not matter if I am running 60 on the highway or 30 in the city. I average 13mpg. And don't get me started on if I am fighting the wind, I can watch it go down quickly. I used to fill it up and the range said north of 500 miles, best I can do on a tank is 325miles. Any ideas on this issue??? I use 89 to 91 pure gas, run cleaner through it every 3rd fill up, K&N Air filter, Opened up exhaust was on it when I bought it. I run nothing but Royal Purple Oil in it. Help is seriously requested!

When was the last time you put new plugs in it?

Plugs and coil packs were changed at 89000 with the top end rebuild.
