Doesn't installing cold air induction give the car better economy? I heard that was one of the improvements so maybe try that?

Get an economy Flash/Tune, or drive different. Resetting the ECU only works for a little while until the ECU remembers the correct data to run the engine to its existing state of (ECU) tune.
