when you say using a lot ? how many miles are you getting per mpg and are you pottering around town etc

also how many miles does it have

to be honest that isnt bad you know mpg :thumb:

as for the code the code P0380 IS GLOW PLUGS BUT if you use the correcct software opcom/tech 2 it will tell you a number

for example P0380-01 GLOW DEVICE HIGH CIRCUIT VOLTAGE

but normally it the glow plug relay the big box attached to the battery housing

Best way to establish mpg is to work out the average over 3 tanks of fuel.

Have you had the egr valve checked? That can cause poor fuel use. Just a thought
