Default MPG on 2012 Cummings

What is everyone getting on the 2012 Cummings? I get 12 to 14 mpg. What can I do to get better mpg? I like the truck and the power but the mpg sucks.

You would really need to delete the emissions equipment to get near what the old 5.9s got.

I took my week old truck from Ontario to PA last week-end, averaged almost 17 mpg. normal driving around town (1/2 town 1/2 highway) I'm getting about 14.5 mpg. This is all stock, going to put my K&N filter in right now and reset my computer.

From everything I've read, and including what my dealer told me, you have to do the deletes to get any better.

I also use the engine brake quite liberally, not sure if that has any effect or not.
