Default Increased fuel consumption

Hi Guys,

I remember reading about something similar maybe on this forum or another one, but I canít find it.
Anyway, hereís my dilemma:
Over the past few months, I have noticed a constant increase in the fuel consumption, both city and highway driving. Nothing changed as far as the route I am driving every day (back and forth from work) or my driving habits (I keep a light foot on the gas). At the beginning I was averaging between14.7l/100km and 15.8l/100km (hand calculated) city driving, while now, no matter what I do, I canít get it under 20l/100km.
As I said, I remember reading something about a module that went bad and needed to be replaced to fix the problem. Anybody had similar problems or can shed some light on the subject?
Few more details about my truck: Bought in May 2009 brand new, to date mileage on board 16000km, 5.7l HEMI 4x4

Thank you,
