you've got a friggin' subie...they are supposed to be full-time 4wd~

I'd connect an OBD-II scanner to see why's it suckin' up so much sauce~

do we know which fuse was removed?...probably the light...?~

I am guessing your car is an automatic, the fuse that was missing was probably the one for your awd disconnect circuit which with a fuse in it allows your vehicle to be towed because it runs as a fwd rather than a awd thus lighting up the awd light on your dash leting you know it's not in awd. If you have an automatic as I suspect and it did not solve an actual problem puting the fuse in place, remove the fuse and everything will go back to normal.
