    Don't forget the extra drag from the Cupra splitter.

    you won't see over 50mpg as an average. 42 to 46 is what I get on varied driving. Just back from a run down to Cornwall from Yorkshire and I averaged 47mpg, but that was with a roof box on. Yours sounds about right

    I get 35 ish mpg in day to day use (all A/B roads and I'm quite lead footed cos I work odd hours so enjoy quiet roads :) )

    I'd have thought you should get late 40's maybe even early 50's to the gallon going on what I've read about for other 1.9 drivers.

    im thinking mine is about right then i no on a run it is really good hi 50s i did check with my sat nav when i first got the car a year back and that worked out i was hitting 62mpg and seemed close to what i worked out but that was on m.ways and i did not go over 70 but mostly 65 mph.
    but just seemd a bit low of late and was not sure if i should be getting more than 43 mpg

    Single long trips will see a higher average. But day to day driving (town, motorway, DC) I doubt anyone gets 50mpg. My 10 plate golf 1.6TDi never sees more than 44mpg so combined average of the 1.9 Audi is not going to blow that away. Over 40mpg combined average is good for a car this size. Long trips at 50mpg is also excellent.

    Simon try using a complete tank of fuel and work out the figures, don't use the DIS. I'm sure you'd get a much more meaningful figure over 500 miles than pottering 20 miles up the road!
