Powerstroke 6.4 Help - Newbie

OK guys I just purchased an 08 F250 crew cab. I have owned a cummins for 16 yrs and just needed the room for the kids. I am in limbo as to this engine though. I have heard happy customers and not happy about 50/50. I only got 13mpg according to the dash driving home last night. I am a family guy not having a ton of money to invest in aftermarket parts. I would like to know if there is any reasonable priced improvement for fuel economy or is this just the way it is. Was thinking of buying and 5yr, 100,000 mile warranty from Esurance for $3000. Probably emissions tinkering will not be allowed right? Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

In order to get as many replys I would post in the 6.4 section. I have heard of members doing egr / dpf deletes and getting better gas mileage.
