There is a tube that goes from the passenger side exhaust manifold up the front of the engine to a sensor that is for the ebpv. Not sure if that may be the tube you are talking about? That tube can get stopped up with soot though and can be cleaned out. I don't think that cleaning that out is going to have any effect on your fuel mileage though.

Do you have any history about the truck,or is it new to you?
Try and give everyone some more detailed info if you can.
But yeah-10 mpg is horrible!
