With a little practice, I can get 18-19 mpg around town (under 45 mph), and 22+ on in-town freeways (under 65 mph).
Basic technique is to accelerate briskly, use cruise control almost exclusively, and anticipate stoplights (i.e., coast alot). Oh, and pump up the tires to at least 44 psi (higher, if the load range permits, but do not exceed max. pressure rating for your tires).

I don't quite get the millions of threads with titles such as 'How to increase MPG!'. I think it's fairly known that a half-ton truck isn't going to get the same fuel economy as a Toyota Prius even if they're made by the same company. There are some differences in driving you can take which will probably increase your MPGs slightly! Ever so slightly. So bottom line is, if you want a little (very little) better fuel mileage, get a 4.0L, 4.7L or that Prius or better yet a Tacoma!! You're not going to be pushing 21/25 in that 5.7L of yours anytime soon!!

Re-size your sig to 320x240 please.
There are actually groups of people out there that take it to the extreme. They want to get the additional few inches out of the present drop of gas being used. I believe they use the term hyper-milers or something like that.
