I thought that you just put a new rear resonator on??!!
bad gas mileage: change out the spark plugs, check tire pressure, check air filter, check o2 sensors.

One more thing that i for got to mention was that when i am at a stop light them am happy about the exhuast and hit the gas gray smoke comes out? that means what the pipes need to be cleaned out? O and let me just reminded some people my car was a rental for about 30 milies so i am kinda thinking its time to be flushed and a tune up, rims and tires brand new all at 35 psi. I mean if i get this fixed dude i will be runing awsome.i just feel like im losing power some how. But one of my main things is i think its time to flush,tomorow is my day off and i put 50 away for my second exhuast so im thinking i am just goint to wait and help the eninge first. I need answers fast plz help me out. if anyone knows of what i can do with 70 bucks to help my car let me know asap. thank you

with 83,500 miles when was the last time your spark plugs were changed? Also your gas mileage depends on how you drive. Do you constantly slam on the gas ? Race your intrepid like the fast and the furious? Then you will get shitty mpg.

Do what crombie said. Gray /black smoke out the exhaust means the engine is running rich (using more gas). I would also get the throttle body cleaned.

honestly, i dont think the exhaust is gonna help you, cause you will love the new sounds, and that will cause you to drive with a heavier foot just to hear it ;)

honestly, is wont help, i would lean towards replacing the O2 sensors, maybe a good throttle body cleaning.
