Completely new to diesels

My previous truck was an 05 Dodge Ram 1500 with a Hemi and I just got fed up with 11 mpgs. So I bought myself a present. I am now the owner of a 1996 Ford F350 2wd 5spd. So far I love the truck it gets around 16 on the interstate and around 18 or 19 on the highways close to home. But I would like more out of it and I have no clue how to improve diesels. Occasionally I pull a car trailer, but mostly the truck is my daily and I use it to throw my dirtbike and my ole lady's quad in the back. Any information would be awesome. The truck runs great like I said but a few upgrades would be nice.
