Wrong index ... what you probably could use here is an index on
data_main.range, so that the query could run with postcodes as the
outer side.  I get such a plan by default with empty tables:

 Aggregate  (cost=99177.80..99177.80 rows=1 width=0)
   ->  Nested Loop  (cost=0.00..98021.80 rows=462400 width=0)
         ->  Seq Scan on postcodes p  (cost=0.00..30.40 rows=2040 width=4)
         ->  Index Scan using rangei on data_main dm  (cost=0.00..44.63 rows=227 width=2)
               Index Cond: ((dm.range >= "outer".range_from) AND (dm.range <= "outer".range_till))

but I'm not sure if the planner would prefer it with the tables loaded
up.  (It might not be the right thing anyway ... but seems worth
trying.)

Given the relatively small size of the postcodes table, and the fact
that each data_main row seems to join to about one postcodes row,
it's possible that what the planner did for you was actually the
optimal thing anyhow.  I'm not sure that any range-capable index would
be faster than just scanning through 160 entries in memory ...

            regards, tom lane
