Default Sudden MPG loss!

I just regeared my '95 Ram 1500 to 4.56 with 285's and all was well with the world, plenty of power and my mileage jumped up to 18-21 corrected mpg highway at 65-70 mph went on like that for about 500 miles, then the floor fell out, still have the power but my mileage dropped to 11-12 highway for no apparent reason. Any ideas about why the sudden loss in mpg's? And please don't tell me it's the 4.56 gears because as I said the first 500 or so miles I was getting 18-21 MPG corrected.
