    Fuel consumption

    Hi

    i had some spray work done on my door as it was starting to show signs of rust, since iv had the car back from the bodyshop iv noticed my fuel consumption is worse, I'm gettin less miles then I did befor it went in to have the rust sorted, I was thinking it might be to do with the oven as the petrol might have evaporated but it's still doin it after iv had the car back for a couple of weeks, Car has been well serviced every 10000 miles, any idea why i'm gettin less miles??

    Regards
    Simon

    Yeah I would have thought they would have, but the only reason I could think of was that they put the hole car in. Like I say since iv had it I ent gettin as many miles so I thought it could be because of that.

    Is there any chance some dust or something could have got in somewhere and be causing it.

    Do you think it's worth taking it into vauxhall and getting them to do a diagnostic?
