Hi,
Is it standard or modified?

In any case I would start with a full service, oils, plugs and filters. Also check the brakes are free on each wheel.
My standard 2009 over my ownership average is 36.2 mpg,

I can get fuel consumption that high but I have to be at full train weight to achieve it. Normally my consumption is in the middle 30s. As well as the above suggestions check your tyre pressure isn't monstrously low.
