Default A6 3.0L intake problems

So i added a 3 inch pipe with a filter to see if i could add a little horsepower to my 3.0L A6. It added a nice sound to my engine but my gas mileage is really suffering. i went from 19-20 mpg to 14-15 mpg. Anyone know why? Thanks

More power = less fuel economy goes with the territory.
