Default Installed a magnaflow now loss of mpg

I had a 3" straight pipe on, had to put a muffler on, bought a magnaflow straight through. I was getting a hand calculated 15 mpg before the muffler, now I barely brake 13. Its been on for about a year. Before the install my lie-o-meter was at 17 to 18, even that has dropped. Nothing else has changed.

Can a bad egr valve be a problem? Or isnt there another thing similar to that, that can cause mpg drop?
