    Does this sound about right? 3.2

    3.2 DSG. Put in Ł30 gave me about 140miles and says that I averaged about 22-23mpg. It does suffer from the hesitation at the mo but hopefully will be sorted soon.
    Mileage doesn't bother me too much as I dont do that many miles anyway but just curious.
    My driving is mainly town and dual carriage way.

    Cheers People

    Yep, same as mine mate, doesn't bother me either.
    The way I see it is you can have BHP or MPG but not both!

    i wondered about this too... i put in Ł50 at a price of 113p a litre and it returned approx 250miles, averaged about the same 22-23mpg i think...

    I get about 31mpg from my manual most days on the commute - 80% dual carriageway, 20% town. For stop/start yours sounds about right.

    Most miles I have seen from a tank is 410 but that was constant 60-70mph on a run down to Exeter. Usually I get about 350 miles from a tank which covers the 300 mile commute and some miles on country roads at the weekend

    I run it on V-Power or Tesco Momentum (99).

    22-23 sounds about right mate. I do a lot of local driving and get about 22-24mpg (had the audi update). If I am doing A roads or long motorway drives i get 31-34 mpg.

    Running on vpower I get 280 miles local and doing 70 on motorway long drive I get about 340.

    yup. anywhere between 18-24 in town with traffic. nearer 30 without traffic, or on dualled roads / M-ways.

    Cheers people. I never planned on saving the planet when I purchased the car so knew it wouldn't
    be particularly great but thought I'd best check.

    Thanks again

    If you are just crawling about town put 95 ron in it, save you a few bob. The 99ron is worth another 10bhp on the rollers but it comes in right at the top of the revs in arrestable territory.

    I get about 10-15mpg with my R32 but i tend to grin like a mad man while driving it which makes it all seem worth while.

    I always thought the car feels like it's got the hand brake on when using 95ron. Although the bhp is reduced the amount of torque was very noticable.
    I used to get 22-26mpg unless I was being daft. on a long run (100 miles) I was expecting 30+ but got 24mpg
