Fuel consumption and foggy windshield

Hey guys,

Bought late 2010 520D estate, with 60.000 Km on the clock and everything is fine except two things.
I have a feeling that the fuel consumption should be a bit lower. I have only 566 Km on the computer since I bought a full tank, which is about 12 litres/100Km (36 mpg). And when I look at few reviews of this car or official data, it's always between 5-8 litres / 100km (cca 65 mpg).
I hope that it's not something serious.

And my second problem is foggy windshield.
Sometimes the windshield is very foggy and takes about 5-7 mins to clean it with the fan on full blast. I didn't have this problem with my previous car (Mercedes 180C coupe). It is a bit annoying.

Thanks for any help.

Fuel consumption should be Much lower! I've got 530d and it consumption is about 9 litres/100km, although don't ride as a fragile and often stand in traffic jams.
One of my friends got 520d/MT and about 6 litres.
Foggy windshield often associated with clogged filter, check it at first.
