Clio 3 - dci 86 vs 106?

Im looking at buying a Clio 3 1.5dci to save on fuel - currently getting 40mpg out of my lag 3.

I do a lot of motorway journeys and want to know how much better the 106 is?

From what I can see the 106 is rated at a lower mpg than the 86, but having a 6th gear I would have thought it would be a fair bit more economical at 70 on the motorway - unless the 5 speed has a long 5th gear to compensate?

Also - I notice that there is a new 88bhp for 2011 that on paper has an extra 10mpg on the urban figures - anyone know what they did to get this?
