milage and rejen cycles?

since my pickup hit about 24,000 miles its been doing horribly. I was just wondering if anybody else is having similar issues. Before 24000 I was averaging 15 miles per gallon on 35 inch tires. Since it started running horribly I've had it into the Ford dealership twice and nobody can find anything. I've narrowed up the tires and shorten them back to stock, and I'm barely getting 14 mpg. it also seems to go through a region style cycle 2 to 3 times a tank full of fuel. Is anybody had any of these issues? What kind of mileage are you getting with yours? What size tires? How many times does your truck region? Thanks for the ideas and thanks for the help, I'm just trying to get an idea of what's going on and what the average is.

I have almost 60K miles on mine and with 20 inch tires on it I am getting around 20 mpg. However, I do a lot of point A to point B driving to work and back with not a lot of stops so I am thinking that is why it is higher. I see 2-3 regens per tank too so I don't think that is out of the norm. Truck is stock atm, but I do think if I did a DPF delete and programmed it I would be getting 2-3 mpg more than I am seeing now

Either have the EGR disabled or deleted and watch you regens go up.

I have this done along with wrapping my exhaust from turbos to DPF and my regen are every 450 miles.

Freaking EGR blows crap back into the intake which makes the burn bad and your exhaust full of trash which clogs your DPF.

(In Homer Simpson voice) Stupid EGR

My gas mileage is around 14.

Sorry for the delay...was out of town for a bit. My driving is normally on two-lane roads at 55mph; if I take it on the freeway mileage drops to about 18.5-19mpg (at around 70mph). I also have 3.31 gears. Hope this helps...

Mine seems to do it more with a lot of stop and go. Open highway seems to be better but still two to three times on a tank.
