Well after a few days of driving motorway,a roads,b roads today i had 8 miles of fuel left in the tank(acording to gauge)and managed to get 554 miles to a tank.55 plate 1.8 diesel.

Thats quite good, especially for a 1.8! I've got a 1.6tdci (i presume the same size fuel tank?!) and I only get slightly more than that. Normally 580 or so, and that works out as 52 or so mpg.

I used to get 600 from a tank pretty consistently in my old 52 plate 1.8, though it started to drop towards the end of its life.
In my experience the 1.8 and 2.0 MPG figures are far better than you read on the internet. I'm not sure how some people struggle to get mid 40s out of them... even thrashing it!

My 400 bhp Focus RS will do about 35 mpg at motorway speeds, around town it will drop to 20mpg

Maybe I should have specified TDCi 1.8/2's haha.
Still its all relative isn't it. If I could afford to I'd happily grab an RS and burn some fuel too!

I love those calculators, but they make me cringe when I look back on how much of my annual wage goes on fuel!
