Icon9 Help my horrible gas mileage please!!!!

I have a '01 Ranger V6 3.0 Edge and i am getting awful gas mileage(10 city, 14 hwy), I have tried everything, new plugs and wires(gapped properly), cleaned the throttle body, new fuel filter, new air filter, new PCV valve, and i have also tried injector cleaner, and made sure the tires are properly inflated. NOTHING seems to work! Have any ideas? please post them!!!

yup clean the maf. also that cleaner you buy in the little bottle doesnt work. you need a kit that you hook to your fuel rail and use shop air for pressure and run the truck off that solution.

You can also try a seafoam treatment.
