EGR valve and gasmileage ?


I'm a newbie and I own a 97 ford ranger 2.3L 4 cyl.

I recently changed my EGR valve and DPFE and some others thhings like Fuel filter, air filter, canister purge solenoid and flow sensor...

I noticed that my gas mileage went very bad after the maintenance. I'm pretty sure I ordered the correct EGR valve (part # CX1740) and DPFE at but I read this morning on this autoparts website that the EGR valve doesn't fit my 97 ranger.

Today, my car runs great and so far no big problems besides gasmileage.

My questions are:

1- bad gas mileage due to wrong EGR valve ?
2- what can I do to increase my gas mileage ?
