Is your truck obd1 or 2?
If it is one you can check it with just a paper clip, if it is 2 you need a reader.

Other than that, just replace old worn out parts. Simple things like brake drag or wheel bearings sticking can kill mileage.
Or buy a 4.9, I get consistent 15 city 20 highway
96' was most definitely not ODBI. The paperclip trick wont work on that one. But most mechanics will run your codes for free if you ask... They changed it over in January of 96' if im not mistaken.

Its easy to figure out though. Do you have this?

Than its an ODBI.



IF you have this, its ODBII

Oh man now I feel like an idiot haha. Yeah you deff have obdII. Either locate a code reader or next time you go to the parts store have em hook it up and see if you get anything.
Not saying you will or will not, but it's free so why not.
Since your truck is mass airflow, clean the maf sensor (make sure to let it dry fully before you re install it and start the truck, don't want stuff getting sucked into the motor) and check other sensors too. You're motor takes a lot more information from the computer than the speed density type trucks.

see the 'How To Section' for tips on cleaning the MASS/MAF sensor

That don't sound right.
Not calling you a liar, but the 4.9 barely gets that city, the 351 doesn't get that highway.
Especially with a lackadaisical trans like the e4od sucking power.
