Just go to an exhaust shop, they know what to do and advise you on, and it may just be the exhaust causing excessive fuel usage.

Agreed, an exhaust shop is the best thing to do for your noise, after the system is repaired or replaced the fuel mileage should go back to normal, it is possible that the downstream sensors were picking up more air so the computer was trying to compensate by enriching the mixture, the ruff ride is due to something else not exhaust related, bad shocks, worn bushings etc.
