Unhappy MPG...HELP!!!! PLEASE!!!! 2.0 hdi turbo diesel

I currently have a 1995 peugeot 306 1.9xrd and im looking to upgrade to a better car this year for the sole purpose of the mpg I can achieve in it. The stats for my car say that it achieves 47mpg.
im interested in the 306, 206 and the 307 and have found that the hdi 2.0 turbo diesel in all these models boasts the same 54mpg (combined).
i wanted to know how accurate these figures are. And how these models seem to be more economical, have More power and are quicker from 0-60mph when they're essentially sportier than my standard 1.9d xrd?

So given the fact mine originally say 44mpg in the book and all stats ive seen for the hdi 2.0 turbo say 54mpg. what do think my car actually achieves and you reckon Its worth upgrading to the 307 with hopes of achieving better mpg.
bare in mind my 1.9xrd is a 1995 plate?

sorry to be a pain in the ar*e just not too informed in regards to this stuff.

If you want to find out what your true mpg is then you want to search the net for one of the various mpg calculator apps such as fuelly. You can also see what "true" readings other people are getting.

My average MPG is 55.3 calculated over 39 full tank fuel-ups and 24,501 miles.

Car is a 2004 307 2.0 HDI 90 with 129,536 on the clock. Most of my mileage is motorway and I set cruise to 65mph on the speedo (63 mph according to satnav). I usually hit stop start traffic at the start of my journey in the morning and at the end of the journey coming home so I guess it works out about 65% motorway & 35% stationary and normal roads.

Regular servicing changing oil & filters, using basically any decent fuel, keeping the tyres to the correct pressures and driving style all help to give the best mpg figures.

Each to their own I suppose. I wouldn't be without cruise control. The only time I don't use it is in very heavy stop / start traffic. I use it on or off the motorway.
