High Fuel Pressure - Bad Filter/Regulator?

I just checked my fuel pressure last night and it was 52 psi with the key on but when started it jumped to 62 psi. Increasing the throttle would make the pressure bounce and then settle back down at 62 psi with constant throttle.

I know the FSM says 49 +-5 psi. I am assuming that the problem is with the pressure regulator (fuel filter). I had just replaced it last year with a WIX.

The reason for the fuel pressure test is poor fuel mileage 12-13mpg. I've already done, fluids, filters, cleaned TB, new TPS, new IAC, plugs, and just last week O2s.

Has anyone had this high fuel pressure or has anyone had problem with the WIX fuel filters?
