I don't usually see fuel economy problems with the eco diesel, but what I have been noticing lately is the EGR valve not sealing closed when commanded and causing excessive soot problems. Then the boost sensor gets plugged up and causes a slight loss of performance and fuel economy. Remove and clean the boost sensor on top of the intake manifold towards the rear of it. It is attached by a single #30 Torx screw. Clean it with some electrical contact cleaner and shop air. This should help. Now if that sensor continues to soot up, then you may wsnt to have that EGR valve replaced.
