This is just a coincidence, your mpg would not have been affected by those parts being replaced! If they had knocked something loose, the check engine light would be on! Look elsewhere for a the loss of mpg, recheck it to start with while driving your routine daily travlels.

This has been going on for 3 weeks now starting with the first gas fill after the r\preventative repairs. Nothing else has changed. I have been reading about the ECU needing to be reset after replacing battery

No that's not true! The computer/ecu would have relearned those strategies before you got home!!!★ Also most professionals or repair shops use a power saver when battery is disconnected so that will not happen!! Recheck your mpg just to be sure.
