    I have a 2013 Limited with the EB and 3.73 gears. I am only averaging 13-14 with it. I understand that driving habits come into play, so I set the cruise to 58mph on a highway trip and got a whopping 16.8 with it. Not too bad but no where near the 21 the window sticker states. Did anyone notice mileage dropping due to the new intake? Perhaps it's the 3.73s? Or maybe it's not broken in? Is there a certain # of miles before economy rises??? Any help ?

    Yes, the engine runs in a constant open loop for the first 3-5,000 miles to help break in the engine. 3.73s are not helping. Your mileage may go up a bit, but you probably won't break 20

    Took this pic earlier today and now it's at 18.9. I was averaging 19.5 last summer so I'm about there again.. This isn't my everyday driver tho. I am currently working on my car that's why I drove my truck today.

    Thanks! Part of me wanted to get the Platinum with the 6.2, however everyone talked me into this one. I have been kicking myself after seeing the mileage. It has great power however, and I know the 3.5 to be durable. Time will tell. I would be happy seeing 18 mpg. Nothing that unattainable. My '73 does that with a carbed 351... Granted smaller gears.

    If you're wanting more mileage I suggest picking up a tuner. And it's all in how fast you drive. I could get 27-29 in my old EB when I kept it at 55. Most of my driving was city and I still averaged 17 for the 13,xxx I had it.

    I just got my 2013 XTR screw. I'm on my second tank of gas. So far I'm getting about 18.5 city and 23 to 24 hwy. This is based on imperial gallons vs the US gallon which is a little bigger. So that would account for the higher numbers. I traded in an 04 superduty with a 6.0 diesel so I'm quite happy with the power and mileage.

    You're still in the break-in stage. After awhile your mileage should improve about 1-2mpg's.
