Angry Fuel Consumption of New Laguna 1.5 DCI (110)

I bought a 57 plate Laguna 1.5 DCI (110) 3 weeks ago and based my decision on the "green" aspects of the engine and the combined fuel economy of 55 mpg. To put what I am about to say into perspective I previously owned a SEAT Toledo 1.9 TDI where the book combined fuel economy was 52mpg and I was getting 55mpg. Now with my new Laguna completing the same journeys I am getting 46mpg compared to the "book" value of 55mpg. I wondered if any one else has had this poor performance from this particular engine? I would also welcome any advice or thoughts on this issue as I am extremely dissappointed with this aspect of the car. The dealer is not interested and says that they would not be concerned with this level of fuel economy, but I am!
