How many miles per tank are you getting on your Gen3 Raptor?

That seems very low. I get better than that around town. I take it you are WFO quite a bit.. Don’t blame you, it is a blast!
I work 1.8 miles from the house so the truck barely gets up to operating temps in the morning. I'm not upset with the mpg's, my last f-150 was a FX2 and was getting 14.9-15.1 so 14.4 on the Raptor I can live with.

I get around 585, 93 gas. My balance between driving it like I stole it is lower, but I don’t baby it either. Probably 30% “Raptor go brrr” and 70% of driving normally and not letting it downshift if I can help it while cruising. I’ll let my speed drop 4 or 5 mph on hills to maintain it. Sounds crazy, but it has resulted in being able to enjoy the truck while still averaging 16.3 mpg (roughly).

Lol, can’t help it…ain’t got shit else to do.
You still enjoying that beast? Can't believe Jack is ordering new Raptors ALL with markup. I still have folks reaching out to me for her contact info. A lot of them can actually spec a similar TRX to a 37 Raptor and with the discounts going, the TRX is cheaper. Have you done any mods to it?

I've got 11k miles on my TRX now and average 11mpg and get 360 miles per (33gal) tank!

Just tint, partial ppf, & a few lights.

Are you thinking about trading for the R? You could use a little “grandma driving” in your life…lol…just a little.

No way I would trade. It's funny 'cause I floor the TRX less than the Raptor since I've got more power, so I do drive like a grandma now! ;)

I bought it before all the price increases and I was price protected. 2022 Level 2, original MSRP $84k and paid invoice @ $78k!

If I build the same truck today the MSRP is $95k! So, to me there is no way a Raptor R is a $30k better truck than my TRX. And that's if you can get one at MSRP.

Topped mine off today 91 non-ethanol (always). Drive the speed limit (~60) on mostly 2-lanes with fairly conservative driving, but kick it in the a$$ sometimes.. Country/small town rural/vacation area. Just under 1k on the odo.

Truck said I got 19.7, but hand-calculated out to 20.1. DTE after fill-up read 664. MPG seems to be steadily improving as the miles increase.

I think its a keeper....for a few years, anyway. :happy160:
