Oh dear fuel consumption has risen

My wife has just returned from a short trip to her mothers house and informed me that the laguna has used more than a quarter of a tank of fuel in 15 miles .

after investigating I have discovered that sometimes the idle speed is increasing when at traffic lights waiting to move off .

I have checked all the linkages and looked for obvious leaks and cant find anything wrong .

I am now woried that the Engine management system is having a bad time and needs looking at

Can anybody recomend a garage in the north west area (close to bolton if possible ) that is not going to hike the price and rip me off
