Best Answer

These engines are not reckoned to be "thirsty".Suggest you get it checked out to see if it is wasting fuel through perhaps a faulty injector or choked air filter.Maybe a dragging brake?A session on a vauxhall dealer's diagnostic computer could be advantageous.If no fault can be found,it will probably be a right foot problem.
