    That's very good,

    What would it do from 'normal' driving?

    My 1.9tdi would just about manage that from a full tank !!

    That's from long distance continuous driving, I have a weekly commute of 40 miles a day on **** roads, I drive my car fairly hard, not changing gears till about 2500 rpm or so, constantly dropping a gear or two for bad corners and flooring it coming out of them :-D in a way it's no wonder why my car only does about 30 to 40 mpg with the way it is drove :-D

    on a long motorway trip cruising at 60 mph in 6 th gear my car could easily do 50 mpg then but that doesn't happen to often :-(

    I get about 340 miles on a tank brim to brim based on a 20 mile daily commute....smaller tank on the cab though I believe.

    Haha I know it is, be done 60 miles since filling up and is reading 455 still, wish it was a really read but it seems to drop fast once it get lower on fuel :-(

    I got around 410 out of the full tank. So not too bad for the car really.

    I can get about 350 miles with mixed driving, 400+ if it's mostly motorway driving.... and no, I don't have the extended range tank, only 65 litres.... not bad for a 3.0TFSI to get the same as my old 2.5TDI, especially since it's a bigger car and can do the 0-62 dash nearly 3 seconds quicker.
