Terrible Fuel Mileage after Injector Swap

Truck got me 350 miles on both tanks? I've nearly reached 700 with both doing the same driving before. This is my first fuel economy test on the new injectors? No apparent leaks, no smoke, fuel pressure is at 70.

Any Input would be much appreciated
Thanks

Ended up hand jamming it at the.pump was only down 20 gallons. I think I averaged 17.X. Now that I've been driving it a few days, it has returned to normal. Wonder why it did that only one time?

17+ is pretty good. New injectors ALWAYS comes with the lead foot MOD. In a couple weeks you'll see better MPGs until your area gets winterized.

Yeah couldn't tell y'all why it gets so good I am rather light on the pedal. But usually only stop once from middle Tennessee to Minnesota. What was weird was this was the first time I used 2 stroke oil in the tanks, I wonder if this played a part?

The best I ever got from my 19 and my 16 was 500 miles, when I had 265/75/r16s. With 315/75/r16s I am not getting that good anymore.
