How many miles will the Skoda Octavia really do the gallon?

There has been much talked about mpg figures for VW group. I have just leased a Skoda Octavia Estate 1.2 petrol auto. I had a 200 mile round trip to Cambridge via M25/M11 and got 49mpg. Another trip to Reading (60 miles M25/M4) gave me 54mpg. Does your experience reflect this observation?

I'm only getting 37mpg from my 2017 Ford Focus 1.0 EcoBoost 140. That's well below any figure I've seen published by Ford. Any idea why this is the case?
My Ford Mondeo the dashboard info tells me my average mpg is 57.2 - way above what I see on Real MPG. Could this be a true figure or computer error?
