    High fuel consumption after misfire???

    My cab has never missed a beat since owning it, but when out last weekend I felt a slight shudder and no power which gradually got worse while driving home, i had the same issue with my last 1.8t so new it was a faulty coil. Luckily I dropped into my mate who had a couple of spares as he had not long replaced all 4 of his when he had a faulty 1, so I changed the faulty coil and away I went, diagnosed and fixed within half an hour I was happy. But over the last week my mpg stays at 27.9... Never goes above or below? I know it normally goes up and down constantly and goes up to 35-40mpg on motor way runs but it won't budge. I'll get a diagnostic check done when I've got time but wondered if anybody has any input? Thanks
