2007 Alfa159 Lusso 2.4jtdm new owner

Hello to all Alfa owners. Isn't it nice to actually be part of a car group that isn't on every road or driveway. I've seen only two 159's since I bought my car two weeks ago. I love this car, but I've had my share of early issues. Straight out the garage, they had let the battery die, and run out of diesel. This then followed up with two days of the mental power loss then surge. I stuck it on the motorway and took it for a 60 mile drive in fourth gear. It done the trick, and now drives like a dream. Well, saying that, the fuel gauge was showing empty, although the tank was full. That however fixed itself when I filled up again. Consumption has been pretty poor so far, but I guess this may improve after I clean the egr. I've also had an eml on for about 5 minutes. But I can't figure out what it was! It looked like a picture of a shaky car or engine. Anybody have a suggestion as to it's meaning and/or tips to improve mpg's?
