    I have been doing my new round trip to work for 2 weeks now. 60 mile each way on a combination of B roads, single carriageway A roads and dual carriageway. Bearing in mind that the car is stage 1 mapped and that i drive normally. 60 to 65 on single carriageway and 70 to 75 on dual, I am managing to achieve an astonishing 40+ mpg. Thats not much less than my diesel BMW returned. I am well chuffed. This has been checked both via the cars onboard mpg thingy and by doing a miles versus fuel put in calc. So stage 1 REVO 2.0 TFSI Quattro is infact an economic car to run woohoo!!!!! :jump:

    Nice one! Very impressed with that!

    My average is at least 10mpg less as you can see from my sig... That said, the journey to work is only 6 miles in stop/start traffic and haven't done any recurring long runs in her yet... Haha. Got 46.8mpg going up to Hopeman and back on Saturday though so I was happy with that for a big, heavy V6 lump! ;)

    Haha, oh cheers! ;)

    Yeah it was all the single carriageway roads the whole way with some overtaking and stuff so I was pretty pleased! Wasn't hanging about too much either... And only 1000 miles on the clock so I'm looking forward to the engine once it gets more run in. :)

    Just out of interest how many miles do you get from a full tank?

    I currently can eak about 550 miles out of a full tank on my 2.0 Tdi auto.

    And average is around 50 mpg on a run.

    Good figures for your petrol though!

    Not that much... Doing my short trips and one longer one like mentioned above I got 430 miles out of a tank. If I didn't sit in stop start traffic to and from work that would most likely be a lot higher though!

    Without lots of town driving i can get 400 to 430 out of a tank which IMHO is pretty good for a tuned petrol turbo.

    Yup, that sounds pretty good to me! I'd be curious what my tuned diesel would do on a nice long run!

    That is good, sounds like the engine has loosened up well. I know it had a slightly different engine but my Octavia vrs tfsi only managed 26 mpg average during my 2 years with it, so this new 2.0 lump seems to have improved things in all areas.

    It's there to be used and enjoyed, and that's a pretty reasonable yearly mileage nowadays.

    Mine ain't too shabby either for what it is but I'm hoping it improves a bit when I finally get it mapped. On a motorway, dual carriage way run mine usually makes around 37mpg according to display doing around 80ish give or take.
