I've finally refilled to show the following data:
295.7 Miles
22.1 Litres of diesel used
All driving was done in almost identical weather and wind over 2 days. The car had 2 adults and one baby, plus all paraphanlia that goes with an overnight stay with a baby ~100kg.

My calculations are:
13.38 miles/litre
21.53 km/litre
4.64 litres/hundred km
60.83 miles/gallon (UK)
50.65 miles/gallon (US)
I used about half a tank of fuel and filled up at the same pump.

Edit: I was travelling at a motorway speed of 65mph with a downward variation of up to 10mph on hills.
