2006 RSX Type-S Bad MPG

In my 06 Type-S I’m hitting the gas light at around 220 miles on a full tank while driving economically. I’m posting the list of mods I have on the car that I think would affect MPG and I just wanted your guy’s input on why it might be so crappy. My assumption is that it’s my AEM Short Ram Intake but I’m not sure. Swapped out the spark plugs as well recently.

AEM Short Ram Intake
Injen Exhaust System
CE28 17” Wheels
235/45R17 Tires
Stock ECU

Mileage sounds about right, I just dropped an 85K motor in mine and I am getting about 22mpg. I do need to look at the fuel trim as I do expect about 24-26

Yeah, that doesn’t sound right to me. I don’t drive mine much anymore, but when it was my daily I drove 75 miles a day in heavy traffic, I have a lead foot, and still routinely got 27-28 mpg like clockwork. On road trips 30+ cruising at 80. I have I/H/E, RBC, with Ktuner cookie cutter tune, but it was about the same stock.
