The high fuel usage could be due to worn out oxygen sensors. If they have not been changed in a long time it might benefit you to do so.

Definetly agree with accenstencil but even for plugged up o2 sensors, that seems a bit excessive. Does the car happen to be blowing a bit of black or grey smoke? It might be running rich although I would assume that would throw a CEL

$70 of fuel is like what, 5L now?

Jokes aside, I'd check the pump if it just cuts out, the O2 sensors may contribute to high fuel usage but they won't cause it to stall.

Do you know how to do an error code check?
