Has it thrown any codes? It really sounds like an 02 or some other sensor is telling the puter to dump fuel in to cylinders, hence the crappy mileage. Either that or you have one heluva drag on something.

Would it have bad mpg if it doesn't have a converter?

If not having a converter coincides with the bad gas mileage, then I would say yes. How/why do you not have a converter? I'm guessing you have plug foulers on your aft 02 sensors then. Am I wrong?
