How do I test for a leaking injector.

Does anybody here know how to test for a leaking injector on a 06 6.0? I have driven like 30 miles and have gone through 200 miles worth of fuel. Would I get a code for said injector?

Has to be something wrong with your calculations or whatever device is calculateing mileage/use.
I do not even remember any big rig that would use such fuel.
Check your fuel lines and filter caps for damage.

A stuck brake caliber will also decrease MPG.
