help please!! 318 tds very hard on fuel/ low mpg

hey, im new here and think you guys are great, yous have helped me out so much already but i have one problem, my e36 318 tds is very hard on fuel and down in power, the car sounds ok and starts first every time and there is no leak at all that i can see, does anyone have a common problem with them or something that i should check? and also could someone show me a picture of the wires that i have to connect a keyless remote control system to the car as i just have central locking at the minute, thanks again kyle

Welcome to the Werkz

To me it sounds like a classic intake leak or MAF issue, or possibly a fuel pressure regulator issue.
