    NOBODY will have ever had better MPG than this!

    This morning I drove from Basingstoke back to Plymouth, on the way there I averaged 22.2MPG.

    To counter this I thought I'd try and get the highest MPG average ever.



    Thats right, 51.3MPG over 143 miles.

    NOBODY will ever beat that, especially not in a 230+BHP AGU.
    I quite often say I'm going to do things.

    Then never do them.

    In real life though, it's a lot lower. Once the car is running mapped power, the DIS is no longer accurate, as it's not calibrated for your 230 horses.

    Were you drafting lorries at 55mph? lol!

    Jojo: Unless you change the injectors, the calibration for the DIS shouldnt change.

    And even if you DO change the injectors, a good tuner would correctly update the appropriate table in the ECU (KVB and perhaps FKVA) which would ensure the data sent to the cluster remains correct for the larger injectors.

    Yep, hung onto the back of lorries and averaged 54MPH for 3 hours.

    Used LESS than a quater of a tank.

    You can only go 10 or 15% each way in VCDS, which isnt enough if you've swapped your 210cc injectors out for 550s...

    Nice one jardo, best I've ever seen for a 1.8t certainly.

    I average 27-28mpg on my 400 mile a week commute, and that's V-power only!

    The most I've got out of mine on a run was driving over to my parents on the North Welsh coast. Between home and Shrewsbury so on the M42, M6 and M54 it did 46mpg... just cruising at 70.

    Then I got past Welshpool and due to the roads being so epic it dropped down to about 23mpg as I was overtaking anything and everything :lol:

    On average though running Tesco 99 I get 33mpg according to the DIS.
