Angry Fuel consumpion

Having now covered about 2000 miles with the Espace, ( it got through the MOT after changing the oxygen sensor and a set of tyres) I've still got a problem evident. The fuel consumption is worsening, now doing about a meagre 20mpg. The tickover is rough, and gets worse when warm. ( I reckon this is getting worse, too) Starts first time. Drives fine at speed, no obvious lack of power or missing. I've renewed plugs,leads, tried two other coil packs ( one off a car that's running ok). Checked the solenoid valve on the intake. Any ideas before I try the expensive option? Jeff
