    No.

    EGR is used to lower combustion temperatures by selectively diluting the fuel/air charge. It is fairly benign, and does not operate under full throttle conditions so you'll never really know when it is operating. Because it does affect part-throttle combustion, disconnectoing it - or a stuck/sticky valve - will usually give you a part throttle or off-idle ignition ping - sometimes constant, sometimes only three or four pings.

    Quite the opposite. You'll get higher fuel consumption.
