Well maybe since it was 10 degrees that was why. Should my fuel mileage go up when the weather warms up and the fuel has less aditives in it?

I get about 16/19 city,and 22/24 highway.And up to 26 on trips to california.Shankster one of the reasons you most likely are getting low milage is because your running larger tires on your truck so your engine has to work more to get the truck moving.And it also depends sometimes on your driving pattern.

You didn't say if you recalibrated your speedometer or not, but if you haven't done so, that will make your mileage seem even worse than it is. Taller tires will make your odometer see fewer miles traveled, which in turn throws your hand calculations off. If your speedo is correct, then you can blame it on the lift, tires, and the weight of your right foot.
