Poor mileage since injectors

Alright need since help here guys. Ever since I put injectors in (warren 175/stock). My mileage has been bad, around 12 driving conservatively. I would think it would be better. I had to put a new ebp valve on cause I messed it up installing the injectors. No codes, all readings are good (ficm, vgt, ipr, ipc). I just don't know where to look or am I expecting to much?

Edit: running looney wild track, should I talk to vivian bout this? Got wildman tunes on order to try them out.

My truck had horrible fuel mileage when I installed my 175/75's... After a couple weeks of driving- the truck increased fuel mileage back up to where it was before(16-18) in city/mix of highway. I did not change my driving characteristics- I believe it wad the truck getting used to all the new items/tunes.

Late 04 f350 lariat.

It's not the injectors. Most likely a tuning issue.
