    Default Has my cambelt been fitted correctly?

    Just had my cambelt done by Nationwide Autocentre, including water pump, aux belt and all the extras.

    Car is running as smoothly as ever, but I have a feeling that it's drinking a bit more fuel than usual. Drove down from Yorkshire last night and my mpg was showing a bit lower than usual.

    If the cambelt had been fitted slightly wrongly, would the symptoms be a lot worse than a bit of extra fuel thirst?

    This is probably just my imagination, but I want to make sure everything's been done ok.

    I used them because they were doing my MOT anyway (£35 with AA discount) and could get the cambelt done 2 days later.

    I paid £230 for the cambelt, water pump and aux belt (again, including discount for being an AA member)
