V6 doesnt mean your guaranteed good gas mileage. Topgear showed that a prius trying to keep up with a bmw got 7 miles a gallon. Driving techniques are very important. Once you hit your 30's and 40's your gas mileage goes up magically!

If I drove like I did 15 years ago, id get 12mpg in my six im sure.

Air/fuel ratio, 11.5 means it was pretty rich, it should be 12.8-13 for a normal car

I prefer Punch it Performance for tunes on my 3.8 and my 5.0. I got my SCT tuners from them and get my tunes quickly when I make changes. I'm going to go ahead and buy a third tuner for my 2010 Taurus.
