Got tired of the fuel mileage

Early June we went camping at Lake of the Ozarks. We had a great time but only managed to average about 5.6MPG pulling out there. That number has been decreasing the further west we go and the more we leave flat country. I happened to be messing on the ipad and came across a deal on a new TV I could not pass up. so I am not the proud new owner of a 2015 Silverado 2500 Diesel.

Will the payback period take long (gas v. diesel)?
