dropping MPG 4.0 ZJ

I am baffled- I have a 1995 Jeep ZJ 4.0, all stock, 230,000 mi. My fuel MPG has dropped from 17 mpg to 13 mpg over about the last 3 tanks. I have not found any fuel leaks. Engine compression is 115-125 psi. ALL plugs are WHITE! (lean). Manifold vacuum is 15 in, and I cannot detect any leaks (I think vac should be 17-21???). Fuel psi is 41 psi at rail. I Purchased a new O2 and will put in today. There is raw fuel smell when I start vehicle in the morning.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.... I am baffled!
