    My 1998 1.8T with an ECU upgrade does about 380 if I drive nicely also, but dramatically reduced if I have a heavy foot... goes down to about 320 miles.

    And at 94p per litre (US$1.71), I tend to drive a little more sensible nowadays.

    You will get a lot more to the tank on a constant higher speed i.e. on the motorway (I get about 33mpg), but around town doing stop/start, drops to about 28mpg (according to the drivers information display).

    cheers, neil.

    I am in Berkshire - but not a southern puffter - actually from Yorkshire!!

    94p is for Super Unleaded or BP Ultimate...

    I do use Regular RON95 when I am skint, seems to make no difference whatsoever where performance is concerned, but was told to use Super due to my ECU upgrade... ho hum.
