Change your oil, or at least check it and see if its way over full and if its REAL slimy. You may have some MAJOR blow by and letting fuel into the oil. Other than that you've gotta have a leak or someone is stealing your fuel.

Probably like 1 or 2 MPG, its worth it. Here is one of the MANY places to get an EGR delete kit. 6.0L EGR Components
