    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!!

    I fail to see what is so impressive about a 4.5k redline

    I hate disease-alls....

    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.

    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.

    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! :eyebrows:

    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
