symptoms of a bad TPS?

how can you tell if your tps is bad what does your car do mine idles funny and its getting on my nerves kills gas too i only get about close to 300 miles to a tank of gas if that i dont think its a vacum leak like people have been telling me because it did it on the h23 motor and when i got the h22 block i switched some of the stuff over to the new motor i already replaced the IAC.

I get around 19 mpg, that's about 280 miles a tank, but that's with a lot of VTEC. 300 to a tank isn't that bad.

alot of the time the TPS valve will throw a code so if you engine light comes on check the little light on you ECU if you have one and check the blink pattern , i think its 14 but i might be wrong, also there is one called the fast idle thermo valve or something, it can cause problems with idle
I notice a big problem when its messed up the car revs from low idle to just under 2kRPM .. see if you can get a shop or someone who has the code reader to hook it up to your car and see if it can pull a code and narrow it down for you
