Recently had a huge drop in fuel economy. No mods pretty much stock.. typically I get about 575 to 600 miles per tank when not under load. About 375 to 500 under load depending on terrain, weight and weather.. I travel from. Phoenix to San Jose frequently .. recently on this route I have experienced a drop in mpg.. towing a 10k trailer on that route I typically get 425 miles out of a tank recently it cost me 210 dollars to go 562 miles. Three tanks of gas to go 562 miles..at this point it does not need to be hand calculated as I know the mileage from point a to point b and before I got there on a tank and a quarter not it takes 3 tanks.. had a injector pump replaced recently due to a fuel leak this helped for a few days.. recently started smoking at idle then under acceleration until I got to cruising speed after that smoking stopped but the poor fuel economy continued.. I ran injector cleaner through it and smoking stopped but still smells strong and get poor mileage.
He means "CEL" check engine light. And unfortunately it sounds like injector time.

I had it hooked up to a scanner and most of the injectors idled at 0.38 to 0.

If those numbers are right you should be good on the balance rates. +- 4 is the spec, yours are all under 1 which is great. If I were you I'd be looking into other problems as well. Look for any signs of a boost leak or anything that might not have been installed properly when the injection pump was replaced.
