    Highest mileage range on 2.5tdi V6???

    Now I know we should take DIS results with a pinch of salt but I was amazed to see 605 miles range from my V6!
    I filled up with VPower as usual, the car was already warmed up, I then drove 64 motorway miles at between 55-65 due to traffic.
    Anyone ever had more than this?

    I've had about the same, a few months ago I went OCD on fuel economy for a few months!

    That's the easy bit, now drive 600 miles

    i think 450 miles is what a tank is worth, but saying that i have had just over 500 once on a a tour to Turkey, set the cruse control at 65mph and kept going,

    I track my fill-ups using an App....just looked through the records and I did 534 miles between top-ups in September last year. I always fill up before getting near the red for fear of dragging crap through the fuel system. I suppose real world and calculated MPG is more important than tank range.

    Just the usual belts, stat, coolant temp sensor.....had the glow plugs and battery replaced as they were getting tired. I change the oil/flter every 6000miles with Quantum Platinum, only use VPower diesel and keep the revs below 2000rpm until fully warmed up.
    The car led a fairly gentle existence before I bought it (retired gent) and has FASH, the previous owner had the high pressure diesel pump replaced.
    Even though it still drives amzing, at these kind of miles I do worry that it's going to go 'bang' at some point but I'll keep maintaining it to try avoiding that, and crossing my fingers!

    Good to hear that - I picked mine up on 120,000 miles will be happy if mine lasts as long as yours without needing the cams doing!

    Those figures are encouraging .My quattro has given 500+ without trying on a steady M/wayish run 70/90 and its an auto but it does have a good tuning box
