    Miles on a full tank (1.8t)

    Evening all, just wondering how many miles to a full tank the 1.8t owners are getting?? Mines doing just over 300 (till the light comes on)

    My way to work consistes of a lot of stop/starts...
    If it's got tits or gears it's gonna be expensive.

    i just got 420 miles on my 3.0 v6 ... generally get around 360 - 400 ish ... would have thought the 1.8t would do a lot better than that!

    Had my TT225 mapped probably dose improve mpg but because it drives so much better you tend to drive it a little more spirited so mpg gain wasn't noticeable (well that was my experience) my mapping cost me £250 from Evolve Automotive

    Come to think of it the car does seem rather slow on acellaration latly, do you think it could all be down to a boost problem??

    No unfortunatly not. I noticed a drop in power when I changed the wheel size from 16 to 18, I thought the drop in power would be normal when changing the wheels for a bigger size?? Tbh when you boot it it does build up the revs etc but dosnt really seem to have a kick to it. Looks like I'll have to get it booked in to see whats what..

    What size tyres are on your 18's and what were on your 16's reason I ask as long as the rolling radius is the same then there should be no difference in the way in performs.

    Where in Northhants are you if your not to much of a trek from me (Royston herts) then I would happily plug you in and run a few tests

    I couldn't tell you the tyre size for the 16 but on the 18's I'm running 235 40's. I'm actually in Northampton itself bud, that would be great if you could!

    That's actually normal for a 1.8T running on 18" wheels, i have a b6 FWD 1.9Tdi mapped and that will do 600 miles on a full tank driven sensibly or 450 if i drive it hard ! I also have 18" wheels, previous owner used to do 800miles on a full tank running it on 16" wheels but i think it's too far fetched ! 30Mpg is about average for these and contrary a remap will get you worse fuel economy ! Going fast cost money whichever way you look at it !

    which 1,8T's we talking about about 163 or 190? I totally agree about the remaps tht give more power, in theory you can achieve better mpg, but the reality is that that you will enjoy the difference so much that you will drive it to enjoy the extra horses. That said, my last two cars have been mapped so I def aint knocking it !!

    Do it from brim to brim, the DIS is known to over estimate a little ! As i said, my best tank was 600 miles and the worst 450 or there about's ! Not brave enough to run it for long on low fuel, i have just changed the filters recently !

    Ive had 650-700s before on my 16s
    just done filters etc, just new temp sender and stat which should give me a few more mpg

    i only work 2 miles away, so takes the engine longer too warm up then it takes me to get to work

    Everytime I fill up, the miles to empty always says 420 miles. But I never get that I get about 350/380

    Recalculating from the smaller tank of my 3.0l V6 quattro I would get about 430 miles on a long run with a 70l tank. That would plummet on a lot of stop start journeys of course.

    you ought to be getting 400 on a 69 liter tank with mixed driving... I would have thought 400 on a quattro (more drag + only 65liter) should be possible with sensible driving... hell I I get 400 on mine with the same size tank and a lot more weight to haul around!

    I brim mine and run it until the DIS says 20 miles or so, by that point I have typically covered 340 miles and mine is the very inefficient 2.4 v6 petrol cab still love it though ! Even at 24p a mile lol. Paper and pen calcs pretty much spot on to my DIS as well.

    I religiously used shell v power up until a month a go when they gutted the shell garage and replaced with BP, filled up with Tesco momentum being so close to work and I'm definitely seeing an improvement in fuel economy. Now getting 400 miles ish to a tank depending on driving style
