Driving into a stiff headwind. Cruise set around 85. MPG shows 13.6. Actual likely 12.5 or thereabouts.

This was with stock wheels and tires.

keep in mind the trip was 12 hours, almost 5 hours behind the wheel each way and was dog *** tired, so forgive the tone of my inquiry, but yes put a whole tank, "25 miles to go" warning and all

also, thanks, ive read up and see that i was confused between roush and "ford performance" parts, etc.

tires are at 40psi
doesnt seem to be additional lift
i think i was expecting more in line of what you give as examples. its not the mpg per se, more so im concerned i bought a truck with something wrong with it; just changed to high flow filter today, was getting 14-16 today around town and light state hwy driving

Yeah, we’ve all had days like that. I get around 15 and change locally, but way better when there’s less lower speed, in town driving.
I believe that over the long haul you’ll see a good average economy, but it’s a truck and not exactly svelte.

Good news: to validate your fuel economy, you’ll have to drive more :cool:

Make sure to go in advanced menu and make sure its not calculating for towing. You can also fill up and disconnect battery. It will clear it up and start a new average based on your driving characteristics.

If anyone pops back in:

The k&n drop in replacement coupled w/ 91 octane INSTANTLY made a mpg difference of +2.5 mpg interstate and in town!! I wonder if prev owner had something similar in there previously.

Ill be doing the disconnect negative battery terminal process tonight after dinner as well.

I cannot get over how thick and cheap looking the filter from the ford dealer was. I would think that SVT / ford performance would require dealers to use at least a “performance” level disposable filter when handling these cars.

I keep finding excuses to run out and do errands just to drive this truck :)

Remember, the Raptor is a high performance Ford truck. First and foremost, it’s a truck, then it’s a Raptor so yeah, it’s got a truck filter.

Just wait until you start finding excuses to do Raptor things in your Raptor. One day a year or so back, utility crew shut down one side of US1 about a dozen vehicles in front. I couldn’t make the turn lane to turn around. Buuuuuuuuutttt I could just climb over the 9 or 10 inch elevated curb, turn around and get home the back way, much to my wife’s chagrin. To which I quipped: “Raptor privilege”.
