hi
im dave
Is there a leak in one of the fuel lines? Check the length of the fuel lines from the pump (you may need an extendable mirror to see the top of gas tank) right up to the point where it enters the fuel rail on the engine. Take special note of the junctions and try to do it with the car running and at a slight idle so fuel is pumping. Check next for a smell of too much gasoline along the fuel rail as one of the injectors may be improperly seated and or broken and leaking. Has the service engine check engine light come on at all or come on and gone out. If your o2 sensor(s) go you use more fuel. If they go there should be a code stored in your PCM (computer). You can pull any codes out of that car by finding the connector and jumping it. Also if your air element(filter) or any pipes are clogged in that system up to the throttle body you will use much more fuel.

Let me know how these tests go

SOURCE: BMW E46 fault code P2799 - what does it mean

If is for a 3 series compact (318ti most common) then
P2799 is the intake air tem sensor 2
Which would explain the high idleing. Probably a sensor problem (bmw will charge) a competant mechanic should do it easily.

I'm not sure if yours is an E36 or an E46 model.
On the E46 a common AIR BAG error light is caused by the stretching of a cable underneath the driver's seat when it is slid back and forth (usually when vehicle is shared by different height drivers!).
Unfortunately the solution is replacing this cable (quite cheap), then having the code read and extinguished by a code reader at Bmw (-expensive hourly rates though).
Some other places have code readers like vehicle electrics/alarms specialist -but the cable is still needed to be replaced first (2 min job) -I think ebay has one at the moment (but compare prices with Bmw Dealer parts prices first).
Check Google with airbag light and Bmw E46 (there's shed loads of info).
