i definitely think your gas mileage situation would decrease with the addition of a 5.0. but i cannot attest. try losing your catalytic converter, what kind of engine does it have? im assuming its a 4.0 because not even people who own the 3.0 like it. if it is, add the K&N cold air intake. that will give you a few more horses.

and Benvenuto!

Welcome to RF!

That mileage is unreal for a 3.0. I am getting 18-19 on mine. I was getting 16-17 out of my 5.0 Exploder. I'd do a full tune-up on that if you haven't recently. You should be able to get better mileage than that.
