Default Gas Mileage???

My 2012 f-150 King Ranch, 5.0, 18" wheels, avg mpg consistently 15.4.
I'm looking to add a chip designed for mpg increase. Any ideas guys!?? I would expect seller to install...good, bad...? HELP

Also looking for set of KR 20" wheels.

We'll I have never used a chip. But I did use a bully dog programer on my 2007 I use to have. I really liked it and loved the extra horse power to. I do have a friend that use to deal in that sort of stuff. I will ask him and post later.

New truck has identical equip. but with 3.55 gear and right now av. 17-18 in town and 20+ on the interstate. Truck has less than 1000 mi on it, if mi stays where its at I'll be happy. No mods.,pics of new truck.

Thanks Guys for the reply's. Pappamike, you exactly the mpg I'm looking forward too. You know, I've never checked the gear ratio...probably the answer. So far, no one has recommended any brand of mod. Still hopping.
