Clio Graduated-Light Fuel Guage/ Economy

Having driven a very economical Clio dCi 80 for the last two-and-a-bit years, I just wondered what mileage other Clio owners (petrol and diesel, please) get when the first light goes out on the fuel guage.
The best I have managed is 93 miles, the worst in winter when the glow plugs are on, 70. My average is around 82.
The reason I ask is partly out of curiosity, but also because my diesel consumption seems to have increased slightly when I replaced the OE Michelin Energy tyres with Pirelli P3000's.
Thank you in advance. I'll be very interested to hear of other drivers' experiences.
