Default DD in Socal?
I'm 95% sure I'm getting the raptor at the end of the month or the beginning of next month but i'm worried about the gas mileage...anyone in socal area that drives the raptor as a daily drive? About how much do you spend a month with our gas prices this high

Your the only one that can awnser that question!
How many miles a week do you drive?
Mostly freeway or sidestreets?

Have you ever owned a truck before?

If you are concerned about mpg's a full size V8 truck is not a good option.
