bdodge445 is on a distinguished road

When I check my mileage I always fill up the tank to the top to avoid guessing how many gallons I've used. I ran two full tanks with the new gears used the same equation getting 18mpg the third tank of gas after the gear change is when I saw the drop in mpg using the same math. I know the gears seem to be the logical answer, but with those gears for the first two tanks of gas, around 500 miles I was getting 18 or better mpg then on the third tank using the same math, same driving conditions, everything the same, the mileage dropped out for the last 300-400 miles. @ 70 GPS MPH I'm turning 2200 rpm which is right about the sweet spot, at least in my truck anyway.
