Get the service records. Check all the panels to see if any are miss aligned. Get a carfax also. Check all electrical systems. Drive it around, and check the tranny to see if it's shifting right.

What size are the "newer bfg tires on it"? Larger tyres affect mpg. Standard are 245/65/17 I believe?

In the summer, I run stock size SRT 8 rims and tires and I get about 24-25 mpg on the hiway not towing...
