I don't know about the bad gas mileage but make sure your gas cap is in good condition and never take it off unless you intend to fill the tank.

No, check engine light has nothing to do with gas milage. My first car was an '02, I recieved it with the check engine light on, and gave it up the same way. That car in general does not have good gas mileage.
