That's not normal.

Do you leave the truck idle a lot? Even city mpg I get at least 15mpg on a bad day. I am in Florida though so that means no hills. But the worst tank I ever got was an average of just over 15mpg and that was stop and go traffic, leaving it idling for long periods of time at job sites(10+ minutes at a time), etc. The only time I got worse was a few weekends ago towing a trailer up to NC which we averages just over 12mpg at ~70mph give or take 5mph. On the highway empty I easily get over 20mpg. And to and from work my average is normally 16-17mpg, not highway but also not stop and go traffic.
