yes, I agree, your mileage is poor. Driving conditions, flatland vs. Hills, driving against a strong wind, bad fuel quality can easily ruin mileage and cause disappointment. A programmer or chip will help, the trans won't suffer unless you drive it hard, and that kills fuel economy anyway.
I wouldn't worry about mileage yet, but if it doesn't improve, then I'd start modding. All trucks aren't the same, I have one truck that clearly gets significantly better mileage towing than all the rest. Everything gets 10.1MPG towing a trailer at 70mph, except 1, and it gets 14.1mpg. I have had it for years, and I won't get rid of it, it is just special or different, & I can't figure out how it does so much better than the rest, cause I'd change the others too, it's just a good one.
