Default 3.slo gas mileage

What is a reasonable fuel milage to expect out of a 3.0 in a 94 extra cab p'up? My dd is at the paint shop so I took a trip in my p'up today and it gets 14mpg. It is an auto with 4.56 gears and 31" tires( I know why they had to put 4.88's in the factory trucks that came with 31's. It is a do My 78 F150 got 17.5 mpg on the highway 30 years ago with a 351 & a C6. MY 85 4Runner with a 22re & a 5spd would of pulled 20-21 mpg same for my 97 $Runner with a 3.4 & 5 spd. Is it the auto trans that sucks up the differance or is the 3.0 really that bad? I looked for a truck with a 22re & 5spd for 6 months before I bought this one. It is probably slower than my 85 4runner on 33's with the same gears.
