Can you recommend a used small van with good mpg?

We need a small van for driving to customers' homes to complete surveys/quotes across the west country, and occasionally moving goods between territories (so a car derived van won't work). We are looking for three to five years old, alright on a dual carriageway and, most importantly, great on fuel. What can you recommend?

Ford Transit Connect would be my recommendation. It is comfortable, well equipped as standard and easy to drive. According to Real MPG, all of its diesel engines return 40+mpg:
