something fishy

Had a 2000 PSD 2wd 6spd manual with a "git-kit" and a sixgun from banks with a very small ZooDad mod, and was getting a solid 19mpg....sold it for a 2002 PSD 7.3( of course) with a 4inch lift and big 315 tires on 16" wheels and im only getting 13.1 according to the computer in the truck. Opinions on reinstalling the Banks products along with the ZooDad in hopes of getting 18mpg, is that possible with the tires and lift??
