Unhappy 1.8 16v MPG

Looks like i am getting about the average MPG from my 2003 1.8 16v Dynamique. 32mpg on normal commute - motorway and town, and 38mpg ish for a good steady motorway run - i get arond 410 - 430 miles from a full tank.

Anyone got any comments on the performance of the 1.8 16v ? - I owned a MK1 phase 2 with the same engine and it felt faster and gave better MPG.

Stupidly i presumed the MK2 would be faster and more efficient, but doesn't seem to be the case - 5th gear acceleration up a hill is particularly bad (new plugs & filter fitted recently with no effect).
