Let me see if I got this straight. A new truck with less then 3000 miles ?

I'd change the oil & filter use something non- synthetic and go run the snot out of it and try to get the rings to seat. Sounds like it needs broken in. I'd also shut it off if I was going to idle more then 5 min.

2013, yes new. Believe the dealer is running synthetic in it, we do on all of the fleet. Is the specific gravity of a synthetic less than that of a conventional oil? I might add that the fuel consumption absolutely sucks (6-8 mpg). Utility bed maybe grossing 9k+/-. Was expecting around 11 or 12.

I would try switching to conventional oil. I bought a new Chevy Impala LT with a 3.9 V6 and it used oil on synthetic oil . Switched to the same weight oil but in a conventional oil and it doesn't use a drop of oil now.
