    Amazed MPG

    I got

    388.8 miles to a full tank yesterday i wanted to try and get 400 but it was on the empty line so i thought i better fill it up.

    That was a combined millage with me being fruitfull as usual on the motorways and when i felt like it.

    Well im happy with that

    how much did it cost to fill up ?

    I'm working mine on 20p per mile on average - can get a bit better if I drive like my dad (& a lot worse if I'm not careful !!)

    No i mean fruitfull as its fun, doing 110+ going home from work somtimes depending on how clear it is. Thats KPH by the way

    The tank costs 58 quid to fill up most times and i always use Shell.

    you get 29+mpg doing 110 m(k)ph?
    you must have been doing 50mph for the rest of it?

    what engine?

    mine is lucky to return 20mpg the way I drive!

    Its a 1.8T with K04 and new head rebuild and some other bits.

    I do lots of different driving never usually stick to speed limits unless kids are about so i was not even driving like an old man.

    I'm not far from Markey's figures. Ive managed to do 360 and still have "20mi" showing up on the DIS. That's mostly through 20-22 mile round trips on dual carriageways each day with a couple of blasts. Averaging 29.8mpg.

    300, is that with your new engine remapped? What was the max when you had the standard 1.8?

    Its better if i drive steady acording to the DIS, but i cant help but blast it, so its around 300 with the map and turbo,drive normal i recon she would do 400, well the DIS thinks so, for most of the tank, but as soon as i floor it,the miles left fall off in 20's lol

    The remap deffo made the car a much better drive, and better on fuel, but we all know thats not the reason we get them mapped now is it
