Expedition

I bought my wife an 08 expedition on Saturday after someone pulled out in front of her and totaled her taurus. And after driving it for the weekend I must say I like it a lot BUT, the fuel mileage sucks Just tooling around it got about 14.5mpg. What can I do to try and get a little better? I'm not to worried about it just thought if there is something I could do to help it, maybe a tune or ....

It was stock
