Scenic 1.5dCi bad fuel consumption

I just bought a 61 plate Scenic 1.5dCi to replace my reliable 04 plate Scenic 1.5dCi. I am really disappointed by the fuel consumption of the new car.

On the same journey, the old one was giving 54-55 mpg. I am now getting 45-46 mpg. If anything I am driving even more "carefully" because I am aware of the problem. The journey is about half in town and half motorway at about 75, and I am not heavy with the controls.

I know that you never get the brochure performance, but this is a direct comparison. I have checked the computer is OK by noting mileage between filling up and doing the sums - it's pretty accurate.

What MPGs are other people getting?

I will have to take this up with Renault, but I not hopeful of a lot of support from them, but your answers might give me some more ammunition.
