New Truck Gas Mileage Questions

Hey guys

Back in January I bought a 1999 F-250 lariat crew cab 4x4. It has about a 4-4.5 lift on 35's. Used to have an extended cab 250 on 37s but wanted a "nicer and more comfortable" truck. I just got back from a trip to the mountains which was about a 90-100 mile commute each way. Going up my truck displayed 22mpg and coming back down 24mpg. I know this is not correct after reading these are known as the "lie o meters" but i am wondering how close it is to exact mpg. I just filled up so will have to wait a week or so before hand calc. The mods so far on the truck are

straight pipe
Tymar DIY type intake
160cc 30% Rosewood Diesel Injectors
TS 6 Pos. chip
zoodad mod

I was cruising between 55-63 mph the entire way depending on the speed limit. The RPM's never reached more than 16-1700
