I don't need to point this out to anyone here, except I thought the OP could learn something from it.

1. You pointed out a few different things -in the same sentence- that could have had an effect on your fuel economy.

2. I, and many others, doubt you got a 10%+ gain from a CAI and throttle body mod.

3. Even if you did, you haven't measured, or shown measures, of accurately calculated mileage figures.
