With the power of the 292 as impressive as you say it is, I would think a 1.2 LT230 would do fine in your truck. Could see your MPG's improve even more over the 1.4, especially if you drive more conservatively than 75.

The change to the 1.22 is buried deep in my to-do list, but yes agreed.

Filled up coming back from Uwharrie 153 miles out.
Then filled up and the tank took 10.7 gallons.
153/10.7 = 14.29906542056075 MPG at 40 to 70 MPH.

Never thought I would see diesel cost $0.71 more per gallon when compared to regular gasoline.

That's almost .50 less than what we pay here. Premium is still higher than diesel, which is usually within a couple pennies of diesel one way or another.
