I'm not sure what your saying here? Bad gas mileage can be caused by the IMRC being stuck, MAF being dirty, or bad O2 sensor. Try cleaning the MAF with some MAF cleaner, that may fix it running rich and the O2 sensor may just be reading rich due to that. Running rich will cause bad gas mileage. I'm pretty sure that when the IMRC is unplugged it's stuck in short runner mode not long runner mode too.
I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left
