Clio III 1.5dci MPG

I own a 1.5dci 106 Clio, its serviced regularly by Renault.
Recently Ive noticed the MPG drop down to 54mpg. I havent changed the way I drive, I drive all motorway miles at night so cruise is set at 70mph and ive not changed what I carry in the car. Tyre pressures are correct and brakes arent binding.

When I got it with 40,000 on the clock it would achieve 62mpg, but now it struggles to get 55mpg. It drives and pulls away like it always has.

I had a look on autotrader at a load of cars the same and they say 68.9mpg. Is this correct for the 106bhp?? If so, Im losing 180 miles per tank!!
