I'd say that a 1.6 should be giving you at least 38 mpg, never mind 26.

Another common problem that you can read everywhere on this forum is that relating to the spark plugs. Apparently, Renault ones are very expensive and dealers tend to put non-genuine replacement to save a few quid. The genuine ones are of a resistive type that are somehow screened from causing interference with the control units. So, that might be another avenue to explore being just visual.

Do let us know how you get on as I'm sure there will be other members who will have similar experiences. Incidentally, if you do need one or more ignition coils , it helps to shop around for them. There are several threads on this forum that give good advice.
What alex said above, also makes a lot of sense btw.

All the best,
