Rookie Excursion owner needs mods help

Looking for some input for performance mods on my bone stock 02 7.3 Excursion 4X4. Goal is improved fuel economy while towing and increases in fuel economy for general day to day use. Currently see 17 hwy (18 if I don't go over 1800 rpm) and 12 around town and 10-11 towing a 8500 lb camper. I hear all the time about 20's empty and 15-16 while towing. Truth or BS?

I hooked it up thinking it was the dumbest thing ever....and took it out 10k no lope idle and power. 4.7 lope idle and power. Plus smoke....which i dont care for.
