Default Ford Powerstroke MPG

Help! I recently purchased a 99 F 350 with a 7.3 powerstroke. I was under the impression that these diesels would at least average 15 mpg running around. Am I dreaming? I'm getting 11 mpg and thats not letting it sit and idle for a long time in the morning when its cold. Can any of you other guys help me on trouble shooting or ideas what I can do to improve this? Or should I expect this in the winter time? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks , Brad
