MPG loss

I am new to the site and I am hoping this is the site to get some answers to some questions I have. I have a 2002 F-350 4x4 dually with 7.3 powerstroke and I have had it for 2 years now. I love this truck. The only problem I am having with it is the MPG's have dropped from around 15 to 12 in the past few months. I have replaced the fuel filter adn air filter and tried adding a diesel injector cleaner and have seen no changes. My truck has 125,000 miles on it also if that is any hepl to you guys. I haven't taken the truck into the shop because it seem to be running just like it always has. If any more info is needed let me know I would really like to get my MPG's back.

Thank you for the welcome. I do live in texas and I am pretty sure they don't add any witnterizing to the fuel and it also started before it got cold anyways.

hm i doubt they would use switch there too. . . no change in driving? race? when you get a new chip the mpgs tend to drop cause you cant keep your foot out of it atleast thats how it was for me.
