Gas milage

so my friend has a 97 lude and i have my 00 we have the samethings done i/h/e he is only getting about 200 miles to a full tank i am getting about 350 to a full tank the only diffrences are his intake piping is bigger about 3 inches and and his exhaust is 2 and a 1/4 mine intake is about 2 and my exhaust is 2 and a 1/2 (dont know if this would matter or not) he has taken it to honda and they replaced all of the emission warrenty stuff and it has not fixed the problem and we also put a new fuel filter on it and it seems like nothing we do helps... and i am also missing an o2 sensor on mine... does anybody have a clue what could be causing this?

Well as long as the air filter is clean.
Bad tires or worn out tires can decrease gas mileage too.

Things like o2 sensor, TPS, catalytic converter, and things like that ... if those are bad those can kill gas mileage too.

Maybe its the way he drives?

Yeah he shouldn't be running that rich.
He doesn't have a VAFC or anything like that does he?

What exactly was everything that the dealer changed with the emission warranty stuff?
