Steve88 - Have you got a bonnet protector fitted? If so, this will cause the airflow intended for the air intake on the bonnet to evade the scoop and thus cause the engine to labour harder, due to the engine overworking to get that much needed air, obvioulsy making it use more fuel. If you have that protector take it off and look at your fuel figures again. You should see a difference. I have seen protectors that have a cut out that allows the airflow to reach the intake easier. Hope this helps

The intake on your bonnet is for the inter cooler only, not for the engine. The bonnet protector will only start having an effect on this intake at high speeds.

13.5 is what I get on the open road towing a 1000 kg caravan.

What is the condition of the air filter?
