I've just had a go at 'driving economically' on the way home tonight. That's about 30 miles of motorway, which was unusually free-flowing considering it's a Friday evening. I reset the trip when I joined the M602 and stopped taking readings when I came off the M53. The limiter was set to 70 and I only had to brake moderately twice. No stop/start traffic and I managed to maintain 60+ for most of the journey. Feather light use of the throttle and 6th gear for almost all of the way.

The result? 46.3 or 47.0 mpg, depending on which of the two figures you'd rather believe (it kept flitting between the two - yes, the resolution of the fuel economy display is as crap as ever on the 2005 model.)
