I have a nissan xterra 2001 that burns up alot of gas more than it used to

What about spark plugs --change them every 3 years
Clean MAF Sensor once a year
Change upstream O2 Sensors at 100,000 miles
I guess you have a timing chain,not a belt,the Cam VVT
Actuators wear & there was a chain update in Nov 2010
for all 2011 & newer,you could check those two issues out

Go for a ride with a professional scan tool on the engine
You may have bad ignition coils or low fuel pressure

Vacuum Leaks cause a lean condition & the computer
drives the short term fuel trim (injector pulse width) rich,
thus your problem maybe

Check PCV System for leaks

Smoke test the intake for leak & the evap system
for leaks

Check for stored codes
Don't need a light on dash, but
may need a professional tool to get them

My Renault megane 2003 began juddering on the motorway doing around 70mph then the engine management light kept flicking on and off. I pulled over stop the engine turned all electrics off and restarted it,...

Check the timing belt. It should have been changed at 60,000 miles. Sounds like you have lost some teeth on the synchronous belt resulting in lost timing. Damage to valves can occur. look under plastic cover on the end of the head for the belt

I'm having my renault megane 2000 cabriolet serviced. a 70000 klm service? what does the service entail?

At 70,000 klm, that is what, 56- 58,000 miles? You should be getting the works, new belts, timing belts, tranny filter and flush? oil change, all fluids checked, radiator flush? brakes checked, air filter, fuel filter, depends on how much you want done, but they will do all that if you let them. And more. But the timing belts are the big ones.If it has belts, it might have a chain. Hope this helps.

Is it normal to have to replace pulley, timing belt and fan belt in renault megane cabriolet after 5 years. How much do these spare parts cost? Have been quoted £750 parts and 6 hour labour costs.

Timing belt on 4 cylinder Renaults should be changed every 50-60000 Km. Consequence of not doing so is having the belt break, and damaging valves and valve lifters (extremely costly) . Replacing the belt is time consuming, and labor intensive. So while the belt is out, its is a good investment to replace pulley, belt tensioner/ roller bearing and water pump belt, which is nearby and has to be taken out anyway, for timing belt replacement. Meganes dont have fan belts, they use electric motors for this duty.
