The best (and oldest) trick to better gas mileage is actually FREE! Everytime the nose of your truck is facing downhill, bump the shifter into the 'N' position. Any time spent at idle RPM's is better than even high gear under load.

Just remember to drop it back into 'D' before doing the redline over rev. A couple of those, and you won't mind buying more gas.
