If you're judging this on the fuel guage reading - are you sure the new fuel gauge is accurate? It may not be coincidence your "increased consumption" has happened after installing a new gauge
I'd full her up, go for a run or two, fill her adain and see how much fuel she uses per NM/ hour based on the usage between top ups.
Many fuel guages are veet inaccurate. could it be a problem with the sender in the tank?
