I bought a Turbogauge to improve the fuel consumption, but, for me it does not match well...

These are very rare in Brazil, IIRC they were only imported in 2007.

I would start with (partially) blocking your radiator and/or grille.
Also, if have a place to plug in you may want to invest in an electric heater for your engine, then in insulating the engine bay.

Blocking the radiator grill improve the engine heating, i would say, the engine is warming quicker.
For aerodynamic impact, it is poor.

I'm looking for the next car, not easy because i love tis convertible... But i need a car more daily use (more inside place), like a wagon or un van....

Even though a convertible might look cool, the unsuitability of a roof rack to expand the cargo capacity on demand becomes a PITA sometimes. Well, if it wasn't for some restrictions to the traffic of Diesel-powered vehicles according to emissions certification, I guess a 1.5dCi Mégane II Grandtour would be a good replacement...

Yes, this car is on the list....

If i "take the way" of Diesel, the 1.6 Peugeot / Citroen should be ok, and the 1.5 Renault too.

Even though their basic designs might be pointed out as quite ancient by now, these are great engines.
