EBPV tube replacement and Mileage

Been a couple weeks about my EBPV sensor and tube replacement. I'm the one that on a whim decided change these out in hope of increasing my mpg.
When I pulled the tube, it came out in halves. Totally broken/burnt in 1/2.
After hand calculation, my mileage came out maybe slightly better to 12.6 mostly around town with some freeway miles. Lie o meter went up. Boost on pedal mash truck empty did go up to about 25 psi. I guess that's an improvement. Especially for towing.

I tried cleaning mine and such. I never really saw any noticeable difference in MPG's either. No lie-o-meter on the XLT, and never really mashed on the pedal enough to pay attention enough to notice any change in boost pressure. I never noticed any SOTP difference before and after.

These tubes are almost always gone by 100,000 miles or 10 years. The combustion Gasses have moisture. They rot from the inside out. Normally first at the drastic bend where the metal is thinner due to stretching.

Not always. My 02 still has the factory tube with over 565k miles on it. It has been cleaned out a couple of times though.
