Surprised I don't see you 'Worthing Bloke'. I travel via the A24 everyday - getting to Findon for just before 9am and leaving Findon (heading North) at around 5.30pm! I travel approx 21 miles each way to work - a mixture of roads. The car has averaged about the same as you over the last year - ie 46-47mpg. I had quite a few issues with the DPF clogging so it's now drilled out and, touch wood, all has been fine since.
I've recently taken the car to the Netherlands - I got back to Sussex from the Netherlands on half a tank of diesel which greatly impressed me.
There seems to be quite a bit of discrepancy when it comes to the economy figures of the 1.9 JTDM engine. All I can say is, I'm very happy with it. It's no where near as exciting as my old 166 3.0 Super but, then again, I'm not spending £60 a week on fuel any more!
Rockin' all over the road!
