Alright a week ago i was getting 12.5 mpg. After heeding some suggestions here I replaced the plugs wires, tps sensor, O2 sensor, Ignition Coil, and installed new grounding wires. Currently codes i have 12, 13, 21, 44. Now I did loose one code for broken tps but still have an error for it. Now i will say the stuff i was suggested has improved the fuel economy quite a bit. I'm sitting around 19.8 mpg ish to 19.5. No trouble light comes on while i'm driving though i would like to know if there is more i can do to get rid of these codes in memory not sure if they're even relivent

Disconnect power for the ECM to clear the old codes.

Near the battery there is a small wire with what looks like an inline fuse.
Disconnect for 15 seconds and re-connect. ECM codes will be cleared.

You now have to drive the car 20-30 minutes for the ECM to relearn.
