    clean air filter and MAP sensor, also check when the engine is warm although in this weather it should be reading 0.1 to be honest.

    If you had the aircon switched on in your car and off in your wifes car that would account for the higher reading that you saw. An engine will use slightly more fuel when the aircon is switched on.

    But they're different engines aren't they, would have thought that the figures would be different.

    Plus they aren't exactly accurate. Just ignore it mate, every engine is different.
