I would be saying coolant temp sensor for that one. Mixture is good when cold but cold mixture not so good when hot. I had a similar problem with mine a couple of years ago mine was running on cold mixture all the time and was going through bucket load of fuel {200ks to a full tank....} The idle was realy rough when hot as well with mine. It cost me about 40dollars from ford. You can test the sensor using the greggories manual. It tells you how to test all the sensors.

All you guys are forgetting the MAJOR CAUSE of poor fuel economy and that is correct THERMOSTAT OPERATION fi the ACTUAL engine temperature is too low the temp sensors tell the ECU to run RICH as in warm up mode the FIRST thing to check is the actual engine temperature (with a remote guage NOT the one in the vehicle) Hope this helps 8-) :D
