Well a multiple spark ignition will help with ensuring a complete burn. But without radically changing the engine there isn't much you can do. You have to increase the volumetric efficiency on this engine to get better mileage, especially since it sits in a heavy un-aerodynamic truck. I am sure Gen1Dak will come in a say something to argue against me but just my 2 cents here.
