    best take to a garage make. It will have electronic fuel injection. Simple things to look at for massive fuel consumption are blocked air filter and cam timing a long way out

    i dont think its the air filter coz it was all loose when i got it and it had no power i had to refix all the air flow pipes i checked the filter its basically brand new and that gave me most the power back but first gear still bogs out on set off and the fuel is going down like crazy
