Try the search function. Someone typically asks this same question once a day. And from what I've read everyones truck is going to be different when it comes to mpg. Alot of it comes down to how well you keep on maintanence. As for tunes dont expect to much of a gain but do some searching and you will find your answer. But don't expect any where close to 20mpg in the city for a 7k lb truck.
