mpg down @ power etc help!!!!!!!!!!

Can anyone help me pick the worms out of this one?
I had severe loss of power on me 1.9jtd turned out to be a vacuum control valve for the turbo waste gate ,but it had all the symptoms of the EGR valve but this is all clean and free, anyway now!!!
Back to pretty good performance but MPG down to 39 ish has always been 44 plus ,when turning the engine off it stops with a judder ! Never done this one before and top end speed is down by 15 mph .
So there’s something amiss and i would appreciate any suggestions
