    Yes you should be getting double that, about 10 miles to the £1.

    The fuel will make a slight difference, but no way will it transform a car from 20mpg to 48mpg

    temp sensor is new (4 week old) on vag-com temp reading was 80'C and on gauge was 90 ,is this a problem,if so whats the cause as sensor has been replaced?

    Also where is the thermostat located,is it a simple job?
