Oil change helps if has not been done.
Air in the tires help with mpg.

These estimates from an online source, my buddy has the 4.3 4 speed auto 4x4 and he averages about 16 on average. hope this helps.
Driving habits can cause the average mpg to be lower.
Also, note that highway mpg are higher than the city mpg.
And, the posted average mileage is no guarantee that your car
will get that good mileage per gallon
That being said, it's a good idea to have tuneups performed
periodically, or to have an engine analysis performed at your dealer
or local auto service center so that you can determine what parts
need to be replaced to get optimal mileage per gallon.
