could have got some trash on the mass air flow sensor. need to take it out and clean with contact cleaner. parts store now carry cleaner for mass air sensor too.

no lights just drinks the gas 1/4 tank in 6 miles

No way!! That's 24 miles per tank, cant be running that bad without the light being on! Take your car to another mechanic, a Rookie should be able to improve on this problem, it needs hands on help. Hole in tank? Have this new mechanic check the fuel pressure regulator for leak into the vacuum hose.
