I need some help. (03 passat 2.8l 30V) I just did a full timing belt job and replaced everything along with the cam chain tensioner gasket, seals, and even spark plugs. All the timing markes were dead on and now I am getting poor gas mileage. I mean it is alittle over 16mpg now and it was 22 mpg. I have no engine light on and it doesnt show any error codes when scanned.
It runs great with no hesitation but the gas mileage is killing me.

So my question is what would cause it to get such bad gas mileage now? If my timing jumped a tooth wouldnt it produce a error code and turn on the check engine light? Any help would be great.
