Fuel Economy: pretty freakin' good.

Just clean the old one off. You shouldn't need to renew it unless someone left it for mice or a hungry neighbor child to chew on while you were doing something like, oh, a week long timing belt change. But, in the worst case, I guess buying the whole thing will be your best solution just like everyone above me said already. Nope, no separate part.
You always pay for what you get. Sometimes you get what you pay for.
It is called dope because it does make you dumb.
Thinking outside the box is difficult for some. They're afraid they'll fall off the edge of the box and be lost to oblivion.

Fuel Economy: using Fuelly. . 33ish for now

you have 2 options:

get a new valve cover

remove, clean, seal with rtv type sealent (reinz is a good one) and re-install.

I rocked a "sealed" cover for years, and just did the same to my cousin's car. it works fine.
