what gears are you running? that has a lot to do with milage as well. I am getting closer to 18 MPG with 38X12.50x16.5 and 3. 75? gears I think

What mods do you have on the truck? Suspension, tire size, etc.

When was the last tuneup?

Have you checked your intake manifold plenum gasket condition?

Do you have a cat?

What are your other symptoms?

Those items you listed will not give you appreciable help. Avg mpg for these trucks in stock form with 3.55 gears is 12-16.

My gears are stock, not sure which exactly. My truck came with 17s originally. I was thinking of moving up to 410s though.

18 and 38's thats AMAZING. I'm thinking of lifting my truck to fit 37 to 40's not sure.
