Default Canadian winter fuel economy?

Hi guys, curious what you guys are getting with our gas in our conditions. I put a new motor in my truck and although it runs great, I'm getting terrible fuel economy especially on the higbway - 16.5L/100km at 105km/h cruising. This is on 91 shell. I'm driving it less just due to the excessive fuel consumption. What are you guys getting? My truck is levelled on 285/60/20 duratracs and has pocket ported heads on the new forged shortblock.

Ecoboost crewcab/5.5ft box with 4x4 and 3.55 rear end.
Did a run up to the cabin about a month ago in SK (500km round trip) and averaged about 14L/100km at between 110 and 120 km/h using Shell 87. Temperature was around -15*C
Same drive this past summer netted me about 12L/100km just for comparison sake.

First gen? If it's a 2012 it's a 12th gen, lol.

I have an '18 (13th gen) with the 2.7

Is yours a 5.0 or a 3.5 EB?

So pretty bad, like mine. I'm levelled with bigger tires though.

When it was brand new and bone stock I could get 11-12l/100km at 115km/h in the summer.

18 5.0 10speed 331 4x4 screw, mid to high 11's in summer low 13's/100km for winter blend. Life time average of 12.4L/100km wich includes burnouts, donuts and the few times she's seen the speed limiter lol . Truck only has about 7000km on so far tho. Basically bone stock except for AEM dry flow drop in filter. I do however remote start and idel for atleast 10 min 2X a day mon to fri during winter which might explain the bigger gap from summer to winter gas. Also 90% city driving dont help.
