Obviously there is one thing you didn't try, correct? Lets take this one step at a time. You need to communicate with the computer to get insights as to the problem. The computer is probably fine, but the aldl connector may not be (for starters). Regardless you'll need to cross this bridge. My opinion would be to contact the local snap-on dealer for a referal to a repair shop that is versed in this field, MANY shops are not but claim to be. Next, You may be creating problems by guessing, setting yourself evens farther backwards at a costly price. Areas of concern regarding fuel consumption are too rich conditions burning fuel that is unnecessary, problems that are not a fuel/air ratio problem, such as a brake dragging. To help decide what the source may be, check the tailpipe for heavy carbon build up. This may indicate a rich condition. You'll need to access the ECM to go further on that front without guessing. Raise the car so the wheels are off the ground, place in neutral and spin each wheel, any drag or fairly free moving? I am assuming that your maintenance is caught up? Such as spark plugs, air induction service, air filter etc.?

How do you reset computer after replacing oxygen sensor in 1999 Ford Contour?

The computer should recognize the repair after some time and shut the light off on its own, there are other ways though. 1. Remove the neg battery cable for about a minute or so and the computer will reset ( you will lose your radio memory though and possible lock out the radio if it has an anti theft device), or 2. pull the engine control computer fuse in the engine compartment fuse panel for a couple of minutes.
