I changed the spark plugs, the rotor, the distribution cap and the wires and the car run smoothly now and has a faster pick up , Hopefully it will consume a smaller amount of gas (not like 16 gallons of fuels in 60 miles). What do you think ??

We hope that but that is a lot of gas (just under 4mi/gal). I suspect a leak.

Well, I suppose drive it and see if the symptoms persist. The fuel line runs along the drivers side of the car. Look for any damp areas or smell of gas. I would also be thinking about oxygen sensors, temp sensor, or maybe MAP sensor but I would wait to see if the problem persists as the sensors are not cheap.

i replaced it. (a.k.a.: pain in the @$$)
pull the vaccuum line off of the regulator while the car's idling and see if any gas comes out of the regulator.

The stock fuel pressure regulator is non adjustable. It should be about 30 - 35 psi. If it is much higher or lower then you have a problem either with the regulator or pump.

Describe it. It could be the breather hose for the oil filler.
