It's hard to diagnose a problem like this over the net . How many miles on the truck ? Heres a couple of possibilities . Clogged Cat , worn timing chain , Check your vacuum lines from the throttle body . I found some on mine that were in poor shape and may of been effecting my mileage also . The one that I think were really effecting it was the one from the passenger side/front of the throttle body to the firewall and around to the r/f fender . During the winter I was down to 7.6 mpg . It seems to be doing better now . Heres a pic of my throttle body . It's the hose coming right out the front , beside the sensor , with the plastic covering over it .
