Just a thought which occured to me - does your autobox have a manual override (like a tiptronic) function? If it does, you can test out some of the theories already given regarding gear ratios. I would agree that its poor - have you been sitting in congestion more often these days, or are your tyre pressures fine? I also have a Scorpio 2.9i 24v and your fuel figures sound worryingly close to mine...
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
