Could it possibly be an issue with a fuel pump? And could that also lead to the car shutting off while driving and sometimes not wanting to start? lol.

Fuel pump would not affect mileage but if it cut out would cause car to die. Clogged fuel filter could also cause car to die along with some of the relays by the interior fuse panel.

Check simple things like plugs, air filter and clean your maf as those can affect mileage. Then you can move onto other things like the o2 sensors and stuff.

Well I replaced the O2's right after getting it. New spark plugs about a month ago along with a new air filter.
Maf? I apologize for sounding stupid, but I don't know much about cars hahah.
I also ran two bottles of Lucas through it.. So I don't know. I'll try to figure out where the fuel filter is.

what kind of spark plugs?

the maf is the Mass Air Flow Sensor that in on the intake. if you have the stock svt intake, it should be right before the air box towards the throttle body.

fuel filter is between the rear wheels.
i need to replace my filter. 145k miles.. think its time.

I got NGK. They were like 5 bucks or something at Advance Auto Parts.
I'll have to go look at it and try to clean it then. Any particular thing I need to do?

Also, I have that stupid intake manifold runner control stuck open code:(:(:(
