A dirty air filter and poor spark plugs will affect mpg and unless you can find out if these were changed it may be prudent to have them checked.
I take it you have done all the other checks such as sticking brakes and correct tyre pressures, etc.
yes mate ive checked the tyre pressures and the brakes seem to be running free
im due to fillthe car up withn the next couple of days and will take down the data that uve sugested
i will also check the air filter to see if its been changed!
