    Fuel Usage

    Anyone outhere getting less than 26.4mpg on a 2.0FSI SE? I am a little disspointed with my fuel consumption. I thought the FSI was an economical engine? I do about 8000 miles a year. Would a change to a 1.9tdi wee willy weasel make a difference to my pocket?

    303 gallons of petrol per year as opposed to 166 gallons of diesel per year. That makes it 137 less gallons. That's roughly 600 litres x 84p/litre = 504.00. Call it a saving of roughly 450. Add to that the cheaper tax. Then compare insurance and servicing costs. But the biggest factor is the grin factor of the diesel. That low end torque still puts a smile on my face after 2 years.
