Vel Satis 2.2dci fuel economy?

Hi there, I am new to this forum and new to being a Renault owner so I will most likely have lots of daft questions to ask!

I bought a 2003 Vel Satis 2.2dci 3 weeks ago and so far I am very pleased with it and relieved that everything seems to work so far

One thing I was wondering is what sort fo fuel economy should I expect to get on a long ish run. I bought the car for commuting as I have just got a new job 60 miles from where I live so needed a diesel. So far on the only long run it has done I achieved about 37 to the gallon (according to the computer). Does this sound about right, should I expect more, is my right foot too heavy? It is not due a service but I plan to change the oil and filters just incase, including the fuel filter just incase this will help.
