Default 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.

It's a shame your Ford Raptor only gets 10 mpg. Posted on 2/1/2013 -

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.
