perhaps its to do with the air intake which causes more fuel to be used up. I am pretty sure i read somewhere about a chip needs to be added to manage the fuel.. I am not that sure to be honest.

personally i blame the government. In my TD van about 2 years ago i could manage 475 miles on 50.
Now in my little crappy 1.4 corsa, i can do about 170 miles on 30!!!
