I'm probably around the same as you. I know after my new lift and tires, MPG went down for sure.

I get around 17-19 in town using 87 octane depending on how hard i drive the truck. I can get 20 if I am easy on the gas.
However, on the highway I get around 16, doing around 75-78.
I notice in the winter and when its cooler I seem to get worse mileage.
