check the rubber tube next to the the lower intake manifold gasket, there is probably a hole on the underside of the tube coming directly off the engine. (it is a manufacturer defect)

It is probably missing. Have it tuned up and a compression test run on the engine.

Bad gas, fouled plug(s), engine out of time, vacuum line leak or clogged.

The engine blows. Usually pistons shoot into the engine. In most cases the engine will have to be replaced.

This is mainly because the air/fuel mixture is not set for the higher altitudes. The lower atmospheric pressure at higher elevations means the engine will operate leaner then the ideal air/fuel mixture. If you set a vehicle to operate at only high altitudes then it would run to rich and have less power once you left the mountains. This overly lean condition is also why an engine will overheat more easily at high altitudes. The thinner amount of oxygen of higher altitudes also has a very minor role in having less power.

The engine needs fuel, compression and spark to run, it is missing one of those.

well the amount of cylinders in the engine will usually mean the size of the engine, and when the engine is bigger it usually means that you potentially get worse MPG unless talking about a mix of a gas engine and some sort of hybrid motor and your MPG may very depending on how you drive and if your driving in the city or on the highway as the highway you will get better MPG because you are not always stopping and going
