"Davantage" is used at the end of the sentence or the proposition:

  • "Tu devrais manger davantage."
  • "Si tu mangeais davantage, tu te porterais mieux."

Generally, in comparison, we use "davantage" (not "plus") before a noun when the second term of the comparison is omitted (implied): - "Il a plus d'argent que moi, mais j'ai davantage de loisirs." (sous-entendu "que lui")
