I am getting right around the same milage when driving around town. It will get better come summer once the winter gas is gone. Not much better though...

i also have the 32 gallon tank, i try not to let the tank get below 1/2 tank
i get around 15.7 MPG on winter gas
17.6 MPG on summer gas
i sometimes see 19 MPG when conditions are right
i always have almost 1,000 pounds of tools, etc. in the truck, so it cuts down on MPG

Alaskanram You in Alaska ? Driving around in the snow ? Do you have the winter formulated gas there ? Does your truck run and idle good ? Don't panic yet. A tank full of Ethanol, Windy , Yuk conditions can hurt your MPG. Try a few more tanks, Air up your tires to max or more, Air filter dirty ?

I have a 26 gallon tank and get 300-350 per tank, I have a little over 6000 miles on it and my mpg is getting better!. Going to work is a steady 15 minutes ride with no stops and using the cruise 3 days a week, the other 4 days are driven in town with the mds turned off.

I can get 725kms if I granny it on the highway, but everyday driving I average 600kms to a tank.
