gale155 is on a distinguished road

I've got a daily commute of nearly 80-miles round trip, 30% city, 70% highway @ 60-70mph. My 2011 4.7 reg cab SB 4X4 is currently averaging 18-19mpg (no mechanical mods). I was getting a little better than that when the truck was brand new in September, and I think the decrease is due to the winter gas formulation the feds force on us. In my previous car (which I used for this same commute for 3-years), I measured the difference in mpg between winter and summer gas at precisely 10% - same station (BP), and usually the same pump.
