13MPG seems quite low for highway. I don't have an '04 but my '98 4.0 SOHC gets around 20 Hwy. It would be 1-2MPG higher if I drove longer distances. Keep in mind that it has to get up to...

I don't get it. Are you afraid to touch it? I can understand some caution if it's a bee's nest, but otherwise it would be long gone by now.

I still can't make out exactly what you have there because the picture res and lighting is poor. If there is any metal (rust) contributing to the brown color then it could be a rusted heat shield...

Hard to say, maybe the plastic was road trash that melted on in a spot. I doubt the bees carried it there. ;)

I don't have an '06 4.6 so I can only speculate, maybe the throttle body needs to come off to see it? You could look at your wiring, follow any leads you see because one of them has to go to it.

I would guess a failed transistor or capacitor but even the less likely faults are bound to affect someone.
