Default 3.6 V6 Pentastar with 8 speed trany Fuel economy

I just passed the 4000 mile (6500 km) mark and so far I'm averaging 19.6 mpg (12 l/100 km) 10% city and 90% highway. The truck is a ST Crew Cab 2WD with winter tires (17"-same size as stock) and loaded with approx 600 lb of tools and materials. On the highway the fuel gauge stays around 23.5 mpg (10 l/100 km) on flat roads without wind and on dry pavement at an average temperature of 26F (-3C)) and at a cruising speed of 73 miles/hr (117km/hr).
It has enough power to pass even at high speed. I love the 8 speed transmission.
My '06 Toyota Sienna AWD has worse fuel economy than this truck.

Do you have the 3.21 or 3.55 rear end?
