Renault clio 1.2 8v

Having a few problems with my clio. Iv resolved a few by replacing plugs, and replacing the coil pack.
When i start it from cold, it idles over at very low revs, and when i try to set off, unless i rev it very high it will stop. Also iv noticed it seems to be using alot of fuel. Im lucky to get 50 mile on 10 of fuel. My friend had a look at it and checked all pipes and everything and when he started it, it was ok (taking into account it was warm then). I left it parked for a hour and drove home, and the problem was back.
Any suggestions to what the problem may be?

Check if the engine is misfiring and also the engine coolant temp sensor as it may be over-fueling when warm.
