Default MPG's !!!!!!!

I'm not sure why there is such a discrepancy in the MPG's on these trucks. For instants, I drive my 2012 w/392's almost 800 miles to work every two weeks, & at interstate speeds ( 75 avg ) I get 17.3 to 18.2 mpg depending on the geographical location. I did add a 180 T-stat, a Varraram Intake (which btw I would recommend to anyone in search of a CAI ) & I have a BT Catchcan that I've yet to install, but even totally stock, I was averaging almost 17 mpg at the same speeds. I do run only 91+ octane however, & all AMS synthetics this could possibly be the difference. I'm a firm believer that " Good In = Good Out "
