    hi all, just a question to anyone with a 2.5 tdi quattro.
    my normal day to day work run is about 5 mins so temperature gauge doesn't even get the chance to move, but I've done a couple of medium runs on bypass and a roads, I got 400 miles from £55 @99.9p per litre, i think that works out at around 34mpg. do you reckon this is about right ans I know when the engine is cold it drinks more and i only get to drive it when its warmed up about once a week, all opinions welcome

    cheers

    I think that's about right mate. I've got a 1.9tdi q and I get a usual 48mpg though with carefull driving I can nurse it up to 50-52 mpg... If you're in doubt; Clean / replace air filter, clean MAF use injection cleaner , (never really sure if that works though) and check yer tyre pressure! Though I think you're about spot with you mpg.

    cool, i thought it was about right, bring down in cornwall is never good for fuel econ with all these b roads etc, the cars all good doesn't seem to have any probs (apart from that nice cheap abs sensor :crying:) just wanted other peoples opinions, thats pretty damn good for yours though? I barely got 45 out of my 1.9 2wd, i did beat it though

    Just noticed in my post. Injection cleaner should be electrical cleaner, the kind that evaporates in seconds....
    I try to be as economical as possible, changing gears at the right time, never really driving above 70, lower gears at low speeds etc, I think it really makes a difference. Wierd thing is though, in milder weather my mpg goes up... 45mpg is my usual winter return .
