if they retarded your timing... advance that motor...

The timing supposed to be to specifications !!! Car on is smooth andyou dont even think that is ON , but is consuming gasoline .

Check your fuel lines. A small leak in the system might go unnoticed but could leak away a fair bit of fuel over time.
