If you are leaving your car full of gas and coming back with less gas after NOT driving it, that sounds like a gas leak. If you are getting 10mpg, that is probably because your exhaust leak is throwing off your rear oxygen sensor (and a check engine light) and causing the car to run like crap. First step would be to find and stop any gas leaks. Second step would be to replace the header (your car only has one). Thought on a '96, that work may be more than it is worth.

A cracked header can cause lower mpg because of lack of back pressure going through the exhaust, and check your fuel lines!!!
