Post '04 Edge 3.0 minor mods

Just joined up last night. Never considered joining, as I've never had any issues with my trusty Ranger until this past year.
Started getting the lean burn bank1 & bank2 codes last year, and they've been spotty since then. Had her since May '04 and refuse to use it as a trade in when I get a new vehicle. lol
Anyone else get horrible gas mileage? I only get about 14mpg-city and about 15/16mpg-hwy

My ranger isnt my daily driver, but when I do drive it I keep the rpm's under 2500. I take off nice and easy from a stop..that seems to be the best for me!!
