Hard to tell without pictures or seeing it first hand. Make sure everything is connected and that it is connected right, especially the catch can. That is all I can think of

the install of those two items should NOT have caused any issues with MPG.

Is the car idling normally? If its a bit rough that mean you have some sort of air leak. Some catch cans have a screw handle (thingy? lol) which is used to drain the oil...these are usually reverse in that when they are all the way out they are closed off, and when screwed in they are open. Make sure it is not open, and you can't feel any air escaping the system.

No CEL and no weird idling I think it could be because I haven't driven enough since resteting the mpg screen

Here's how I hooked up the catch can short hose to top long hose the the back.

If you reset the MPG and then went out hotrodding with your new mods, that'd be the reason.

Try resetting your MPG average, then take her out for one or two nice drives with some highway driving and see where it ends up.

Not sure but I think your catch can is hooked up wrong.
