    MPG 170 Avant

    Just wondered what sort of fuel consumption to expect from my 2008 170 Avant, how many miles would you expect to get out of £30 with a combination of short and longer trips and little bit of motorway, just interested to see a comparison I get between 130-150 miles before the light comes on, cheers

    MPG 170 Avant

    I'm only seeing 40mpg from my 40 mile commute mainly main roads and Mways, grandad driving almost too, but mine is a Quattro. hopefully a fwd will be slightly better.... That's about 180mile to £30... I think.

    Cheers mines mostly stop start so probably about right, just wanted to get an idea compared to my old BM 320d which was about the same but only had 136hp so with the extra power I'm happy its not using more.

    37mpg average on a 170Quattro Avant, would expect around 45 is right for a 2WD.

    I do drive it like you are meant to drive a TDI though.

    its i fuel cleaner but instead of adding it to the tank you remove the pipes at fuel filter and run the tubes into a jar of pure diesel purge and run it. For around 15-20mins at idol and rev it a little. Theys loads of videos on you tube. Didnt beleave it til i tryed it

    We had a 09 passat estate with the common rail 170 engine and usually got 50+. Best we had was 64 and that took some doing!!
