Welcome to the forum. It is always a good idea to replace all coil packs together as they will often fail within a short time of each other. The fuel consumption will get worse as you probably have further coil issues and the engine is misfiring. In addition you may have unburnt fuel entering the catalytic converter which can cause cat failure.

When were the coils changed?
Was it done at a dealer or an independent and is there a warrenty on the work?
Is the light on all the time?
Is the engine running rough when the light is on?

A lot of questions I know but the more info you can provide the more help we can try to give.
Currently in chris m's garage:
2000 Scenic 2.0 16v Monaco, BMW 3 Series, Pug 206
