So, I noticed my fuel economy was pretty bad even with a pretty light foot. I am only getting about 200 miles before the gas light comes on, using 93 octane. I figure it's probably a vacuum leak somewhere because its throwing the P1498 code. I cannot find where it could be leaking, any suggestions would be appreciated.

above link worth a read
The 05 Mini Cooper doesn't have an EGR valve and when I look up the specific code for it it means, "There is unmetered air after the compressor." This doesn't narrow it down a whole lot. Does anyone have Bentley Repair Manual that can let me know some ways to diagnose this issue?
