    Mine returns 41mpg, you should be getting much more than 23 mpg fella. The record is just over 51mpg for the 1.8 on this forum. EML on at all? Engine shaped light, Bottom right corner of the dashboard.

    Are you mainly town driving? Its had a set of plugs lately? Might be a knackered Lambda sensor. Might be worth doing a pedal test just in case the EML Light is faulty(it should light up when you turn the ignition to position 2).
