Sensor Help

A while back on here there was a posting about how a sensor was replaced and fuel economey went up (ICP maybe?). Reason I'm asking is my fuel economey is really starting to tank, 56-70 miles on a 1/4 tank. I baby my truck and a month ago I was getting 80-100 miles out of a 1/4 on winter blend. Any suggestions would be great.

Thanks,

AJ

Have you changed the fuel filter lately? If it cloggs it seems to make the mileage drop. And an oil change can also help sometimes. Fuel conditioner also.
