Need some help please

Hi ! This isnt a true ''Tuning'' question, but I wanted to be sure that I'd get Tom's attention :p Irecently had a BIG misfire issue with my svt and it started acting funny since ( and exhaust smells too) . I read my CEL codes but none of them were due to misfiring, instead they were p0171 (system too lean ) p0172 (system too rich ) p1130-1131-1132 (lack of o2 sensor switch lean/rich/adaptative limit). So my guess was that none of the symptoms were due to my ignition system as it was functionning properly and that the misfire was due to the lean condition. All of this pointed me toward o2 sensor, fuel pressure,maf sensor or vacuum leak as the potential culprit.I tested for vacuum leak by spraying all around intake manifold and on vacuum lines but found nothing. Furthermore, cars runs perfectly when cold,idling or at WOT (read ''In open loop'') so I did a datalog and I'd like to share it with you so you can give me your thoughts about but I cant upload anything else than a picture on the forum Can someone explain me how please ? And opinions on my problem are welcome too
Thanks !!

I'm currently working out some prooblems I had with my file format sending my datalog to Tom. Meanwhile, can someone explain me why, no matter what I do, my xcal2 seems to only keep in memory the last 80 or so seconds of my datalog ? everything earlier than that doesnt appear on my log and the timestamp of the log starts at a couple hundreds seconds instead of 0 ???
