Default 300 Straight 6 Gas Mileage

Ok so I keep hearing different things about the gas mileage for a 300 six. Most people say they get worse mileage than a 302, but I've also heard a few people say they get great mileage. I had an 89 F250 with a 300 six that got 20 mpg. My 92 F150 only got maybe 13 when I first bought it, but recently did a full tune up and now I get about 16.5 - 19 mpg. Anyone else have issues with the gas mileage?

*Both trucks are fuel injected and have the 5 speed transmission. I have never owned a 300 automatic.
