Re: Low MPG
You might consider a switch for the brown wire so you have the best of both worlds. Is the temp. sensor in the airbox connected? Should only do one at a time. Should run Premium fuel.
About the only thing consistent with poor fuel milage is a bad o2 sensor, I know you replaced it, but that’s about it. I would concentrate in that area - disconnected wires or just a bad sensor.
I see no rhyme or reason why fixing a split line in the fuel tank would increase/decrease your milage, the engine would run poorly but wouldn’t use extra fuel.
