Well first off, caps lock isnt a good thing.
The black smoke could be caused by carbon deposits but in ur case it probably isnt if it wasnt doing it before. Its probably that the mass air flow sensor (MAF) was riped out to and is causing the car to run rich. That would also explain the poor fuel consumption.
