ummm.... no you shouldn't remove the EGR and block off the vacum .... if the EGR needs replacing replace it.

If you think it drinks gas now you'll die if you take the EGR valve off. If you take it off you'll eventually fun into several worse issues....such as detonation and fouling plugs. Replace it.
