    Nope, at least according to accelerationg graphs, TDI changed gear at ~66mph, and FSI at ~59mph, so they're both approaching gearchange soon (but that 59mph explains the 0-60 figure though). FSI's third should reach 90mph.

    Anyway, can't be the gearchange.

    You really do make it up as you go along, don't you !

    Taken from my earlier post of Autocar figures ( see I quote fact, you never have - What acceleration graphs )

    TDI gear ratios
    5.2
    8.8
    13.8
    20.0
    26.4
    32.1
    Max power at 4000 revs. Limiter @ 4300rpm

    FSI gear ratios
    5.4
    9.0
    13.4
    17.1
    21.0
    24.8
    Max power at 6000 revs. Limiter @ 6500rpm ?

    So TDI needs 3 gear changes to get to both 60 and 80 ( 4th gear required ) while FSI needs only 2 gear changes for both ( 3rd gear required )

    Also from same Autocar figures the TDI is indeed quicker by the 100mph mark.

    The difference or anomolly ( spelling ) between 60-80 is probably caused by the leggy 3rd gear on the FSI, if you look at the ratio spacing.

    I hate diesels and swear by petrol, but even i would admit that on the road a TDI would eat an 2.0FSI for breakfast!

    Crikey,even the FSI owner I work with admits my TDI is quicker,and easier to drive faster.

    A mate of mine who has a Mkiv gti, just traded it in for a MkV GTtdi after having a drive in my TDI S-Line.

    Fantastic. This post was actually about relative MPG figures, but it was always going to end up as a debate on whether diesel or petrol is the most powerful.

    Here's a thought - whats the most OBSCURE topic you could post, that could be relied upon to end with another diesel vs petrol power argument?

    My humble offering is about to go online...
