I bought a 147 JTDm on Saturday, and today I noticed the range to empty dropped by 70 miles, when I had driven around 3. The mpg reading is at 45, and I haven't noticed the fuel needle dropping too much. Is this common, or do I have a problem?

It's common - the range is calculated on recent consumption, so a period of short runs & cold starts will cause the range figure to drop. Conversely, on a long run after a period of short runs & cold starts will result in the range figure increasing as you drive.
