1997 Ford Ranger 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 101000 miles

I have a 97 ford ranger 2.3 thats been having gas mileage issues lately. I use to be able to get atleast 150 miles at half a tank, now I only get 110 miles at half tank on a good day. I took it to get a engine diagnostic done on it and they said I needed a new mass air flow sensor, o2 sensor (before the cat. Converter) and 2 coil injectors, so I went and replaced all those, but the gas mileage still hasnt changed, so my question is, what else could be the problem?

Do you
have the same problem?

Try running some 93 octane in it for a while and add some fuel system cleaner and let that run through it a few times.

Hows your tire pressure look? Check to see if your brakes are dragging.
Maybe o2 sensor wasn't hooked up right

check your air filter also.
