Take it to your dealer immediately as its prob the same issue I had and I had a new engine fitted last week
The problem is the oil pump and head gasket and it's covered by Lexus UK.
Hope this helps

Bear in mind that once the engine ECU is reset/reprogrammed the car has to go through a relearning process for fueling and driving style so this could be the reason for the sudden miraculous MPG improvement.
Give it a couple of weeks and see if the problems return.
The good thing is you have the required FLSH and a paper trail for the repair should the problem return and you do need an engine rebuild.

Think I got unlucky with my car, poor customer service too at Lexus Bradford.
