    A4 TDI (B6) 1.9 AWX ENGINE, BASICALY I DROVE IT 220 MILES (120 MILES WERE MOTORWAY AND 100 LOCAL DRIVING)

    WENT TO FILL UP AND IT TOOK 25 QUID TO FILL TO THE BRIM AGAIN I THINK 24.88 LITRES=25 QUID (87.9 PENCE PER LITRE)

    IS THIS GOOD OR SHOULD I BE GETTING MORE MILES?

    FULLY SERVICED ALL GENUINE PARTS,NEW COOLANT SENSOR AND DONE A FULL SCAN ON VAG-COM (NO FAULTS FOUND)

    IT IS THE 130 BHP MODEL.

    Unless my calculations have all gone to pot then you are getting 32 mpg!

    25 / 0.879 = 28.44 litres

    28.44 / 4.2 = 6.77 gallons

    220 / 6.77 = 32.49 mpg

    This figure does depend on how you drive but that does seem a tad low, considering I get about the same out of my heavier 2.5tdi auto quattro.

    I reckon it depends a lot on your driving style - I've got an A4 saloon 2.5 TDI (2002) I've had for two months - nearly 6,000 miles on it's running at an average of 48.3 mpg.

    There's 4.55 litres in a gallon, not 4.2. That makes 6.25 gallons, not 6.77, and 35.2mpg rather than 32.49. Still not great, mind you. I can almost get that from an A4 2.4V6 petrol with multitronic!
