    sounds about right for a 1.9TDI quattro on an 80mph+ cruise... I'd need to be gently nurturing it back and forth between 65mph and 75mph to get that sort of economy! Who says the V6 TDI's are faster ;)

    Check it on paper before you go believing the DIS too much!

    I get v similar readings with my remapped 1.9quattro. Drive like a pensioner and I can get the DIS to show 54mpg! Though that's grandpa driving. I also subtract 10% from the DIS as I have worked it out tank for tank a few times and it turned out to be a few mpg less in real life.

    You should get almost the same mpg on a remap as stock if you drive at partial throttle ie don't hammer it. It's only the WOT and heavy right foot driving that is different , if you drive sensibly mpg should be the same.
