yeah it seems most likely that it was just the computer playing up.... it did behave very strangely after the incident - but the bottom line it just wouldn't register anything over 29mpg - even if I started it while coasting on the motorway - now it does and had it showing 45mpg + again, so I feel much more reassured, as planning a long drive over xmas...

Interesting though, as I was convinced it was the inlet manifold - there seems to be threads with similar symptoms pointing to that, but it turned out to be just the battery! Thanks!
