    Yes I'd say it's doing about 38 at the moment, but I leave my car running for a good few mins before I head off these cold mornings,

    I'd say the car is capable of doing 45 but I'd imagine you wouldn't be crossing 55 mph to achieve that?

    I had a mk5 golf before my god was it light on fuel, but not as nice a car to drive though.

    I think I read somewhere that the climate control knocks a good mpg's off

    Have you the AWX engine? and do mostly motorway miles?

    I mostly drive very bad roads, and spent a lot of time accelerating from 70 mph, dropping down to 40 / 50 mph for bad corners and accelerating back up to 70 again mostly in 6th gear maybe I'm labouring my engine to much and should nearly keep the car in 5th gear most of the time

    Stu, I have no idea It's just suddenly dropped recently and I'm not sure why. I know that the cold makes it worse, coupled with getting some 235 tyres won't help, but I used to get mid 40's quite easily.

    Ideas?

    Should have gone for a 1.8T 190 bhp quattro A4 instead much the same mpg when you think about it,

    I can only imagine the performance of the 190 Horses

    As soon as you come off the motorway the tdi mpg drops massively.

    yeah mine are 17's with the standard 205's

    but even so I never drop below 42 mpg no matter how I drive

    although the missus gets less mpg then me usually by about 2 and she drives like miss daisy!

    normal driving I'm never on a motorway or at national speed limit and still get anywhere from 44 - 50! when I hit national speed limits this increases still

    Re: Got an MPG app....

    It's definitely an odd one. And I've thought the same thing too about maybe I should have bought a 190 1.8t with the current mpg I'm getting.

    To be fair it is having a fair few shorter journeys recently. Maybe it needs a good old rag to get bring her back to life?

    one thing for sure is the cold does not help at all during the summer months the missus will get 48 to and from work in winter its 42 ish

    If you really want to check anything I would look at the MAF and coolant sensors and the stat make sure it warms up properly

    Re: Got an MPG app....

    Crazy, mine recently dropped from mid 40s to mid 30s.
    I think it's due a filter change and water drain. See if that makes any difference.
    Service next month I think, it's coming up to 150k, that should help.

    Nice apps.
    I'm off to take a look.
