Averaging 41 MPG on an auto 120. This seems to be my standard for this car over its 3000 miles. My Megane (a 1.6, same power as the 1.2) averaged 39 MPG.
I am not a frugal driver, and put my foot down if I need to.

It will probably go up more as well. I'm up to 66mpg at the moment, but not sure if your automatic transmission makes a difference.
Are you leaving the eco button on ?

Hi AWQ - yeah for longer journeys I leave the ECO button on. When I am about town I turn it off so that i can pull away at roundabouts etc. To be hones i prefer the ECO button being on. It seems to be smoother! The MPG rises more when ECO is on on the auto too I have found.

Don't forget it is important to keep your own record of petrol/diesel bought and mileage and not to rely entirely on the figure given in the car. I do and it varies quite a bit over time.
Actually I've done a paper and pencil calculation twice now on a full tank of diesel, and seem to be getting 55mpg, which is pretty poor. Hoping it improves....

Had my car just 1 week and covered 1000 km, about 600 miles
Averaged 62.7 mpg using Eco a lot of the time but turning it off when we needed the air con to work better.
Very pleased for an automatic.
So far finding the torque from the diesel makes it very responsive in normal driving, although lacking a bit when overtaking. But for only 90BHP it performs well.
The gear box is very smooth, as is the engine, making for a nice relaxed drive.

Hit 69 MPG today. Mostly non motorway driving. Leaving eco on except when it's hot, so the air con works better.
Must admit, I go a bit slow (well, usually within the speed limits) and when I occasionally use the motorways, it's 56 - 60 max.
Have worked it out manually and it appears correct. Trying to hit 70 mpg now.
One other thing - why waste a good roll down a hill. Amazing how far you can go and what speed you can pick up for free.
