Help Warning lights and messages

I have a 2008 159 JTDm. today the engine light came on and stayed on?? also got a message saying my ABS doesnt work. My fuel consumption sucks too, I put 30 in, so far its done 91 miles Urban and A roads and is nearly on the red

Before I trudge off to the garage does any of this sound familiar.

Hi I got the ABS light on last week when leaving for work I was late and may not have waited for the warning indicator lights on the dash to go out before starting, it has not happened since, wait until abs light and gearbox oil light have gone out before starting engine see if that is better. sorry can't be more help only ad my 159 12 weeks still learning it's characteristics.
regarding economy get high 40s on motorway cruising around 70ish to 80ish !! over 50mpg when at 55ish but that's on current NOT the average consumption readout which stays around the 35-38 mpg.
