Just thought i'd share my fill up, trip computer miles left on tank.
Yeh but that's only impresssive if you can actually manage that, which you clearly won't!
If I've been takin it easy prior to fill up I can too can get such an optimistic m.t.e. But impressive for me would me 450 miles! Which has nevewr been achieved.
For economy nothin beats the 1.9pd with a remap, in the lighter mk4 chassis. I could get 650 miles off a 55l tank easy.
I'm perfectly happy with my dis showing 270miles when full all because I have a lovely purr of a naturally aspirated V6, I'd sacrifice economy for that, Diesels remind me of growing up on a farm and tractors (no offence meant)!
I am happy that you get that mpg! Just in the same way I am happy every time I start her up!!
and something diesel owner's can only dream of ...
I fail to see what is so impressive about a 4.5k redline
I hate disease-alls....
quite impressive for an diesel...but here is mine
I managed to get 48MPG on a recent motorway journey from my petrol 1.8T - it would have been even higher, but I had the A/C on the first 30 miles or so.
Whenever I used to fill up my 1.9 it would show 1200 miles in the range... as if I ever got that though.
I've actually managed to get 780 to a tank once, but i did drive like 60mph from London to Leeds and back
Although i am a diesel owner, i am with the petrol majority in this thread.. You can't beat a petrol car.. I like my DSG TDI but as soon as i am in the position to get a fast petrol car, it's either going to be a VAG TFSI/TSI, V6 or possibly a Honda VTEC!
Decent miles to a tank is good but you can't whack the thrash of a petrol motor.
LOL thats funny
Diesel for the dreary drive to Birmingham, yes.
For the open road?
haha, I agree, I want a petrol but wouldn't be able to afford the insurance at 18. Will get an S3 as my next car!
Your doing alright mate, I had one of these at 18.
1.3Litres of raw Longbridge PETROL Grunt:icon_thumright:
That sounds amazing!
Now scroll to the average figure

Back on blackberry..that f50 sounds so good the guy ridin shotgun actually cums in his pants! U can hearhim lol
I honestly prefer the deep growl of the rs6 , the ferrari sounds like cannonball film or a f1 going past...each to there own though :icon_thumright:
this cobra does it for me
and my fave sport car of all time ...many will disagree but each ot there own ..
check the dash instruments ??
I could take a pic of my speedo sitting at 170 and see if you could better that?
I'd rather have loads of fun and get 20mpg than be bored witless and get 50mpg
