Has anyone experienced a loss in fuel mileage with the winter blend fuels or is my truck just trying to send me to the poor house?

Seems like you have always reported pretty poor fuel mileage on your trucks you had a dodge before this truck, a 5.9 if I'm not mistaken and had the same gripe. I think you have some oddity in how you use it that you don't say or don't think of. We pulled a 17k+ pound dozer/trailer combo with an '05 duramax and got better mileage than your getting and I'm betting whatever you were towing was 1/2 that.

What size tires are you running?

I would be the last person talking about MPG, driving a Toyota. That said, my last ride was an 08 Dodge 3/4 Ton mega-Cab, 4wd with the 6.7 Cummins. Loved the truck, but after 176K, it still didn’t pay for itself. MPG was about 3 more than my Yota gets, Fuel, generally $.25 a gallon more than gas. Way more maintenance costs that a gas burner. I loved the diesel though. Towing was outstanding. It was 3 years of AC problems that no one was able to fix that drove me out of the dodge and into the most reliable pickup on the road, the Toyota Tundra.
