I think I just drove mine much harder the first few tanks, then settled down. I'm like you guys, 13.5mpg or so the first 4-5 tanks, and now 16-18mpg (4100mi, 3.55's). As far as pulling, 65mph seems to be the hardest on all newer vehicles. If I go 70-78mph, I make better mileage, or if I slow to 55 I make better mileage (towing). This was true in my 03 6spd Cummins too w/ 33's and 35's w/ 3.73's. I know she sags big time w/ any kind of load, but sure rides nice empty. Guess I could always put bags under her if I were to actually use her like a truck.
