Having the same engine and worries in the past try this before you worry yourself unecc...let me know how you get on...

Reset your mpg computer whilst on a level dual carriageway or motorway or a road..

Travel for 1.5 miles at a constant 60 mph in 5th gear..

What mpg does the car compute ?

Should be around 40 to 44 mpg ?

If that's the case nothing to worry about..

Around town ( at the moment ) I am only getting 25mpg due to the cold conditions ( heater and auto choke - short journeys )..

A quick oil , filter, plugs change may also improve things - use an expensive 10/40 oil to ensure better mpg and ths cost savings in the longer term..

Also can recomend an air filter upgrade ( k+n ) as this will improve your throttle response and not adversly effect the mpg or ecu ..
