Thanks in advance for any help or advise anyone can offer.

Check the fuel injectors i had that i looked at the fuel injectors and fuel rob and found a rubber ring on the first inctor had a flat spot letting the fuel out i turned it around and it was fine after that but still only managed about 25 mpg after that but better than 20 iguess just an idea hope it helps.
