Clio 1.5 DCI 80 fuel comsumption

I REcently bought a Clio 1.5 DCI 80 on an 03 plate and since getting it i have had to do a fair amount to it,its had all new belts new water pump oil service and new air filter. Its starting to bug me though that the fuel economy is appalling for around 30 quids worth of diesel im only getting between 35-40mpg which on a combined cycle mostly on country lanes i think is really bad, i had a poke around the car and cant see any fuel leeks anywhere but it has been chucking it down hard so havent really had a proper look.

I wouldn't have thought twice about it but i used to have a clio 1.4 16v etoile which comfortably did 45 mpg on the same route.

After looking online i saw that the car is meant to do 60+mpg on the sort of roads im driving on has anyone got any ideas of what i can do to bust the economy on the car?


Currently in clio dci's garage:
