    What mpg are you sportback drivers getting? TDI 140 BHP

    "people never quote their engine, whether the figures are real or DIS etc etc. Also, people will look at their DIS more when they are under acceleration, hence it will show more" Exactly, everyone just throws pub figures round the place and tell them selves that there cars are doing 50 mpg!!

    What do you pay insurance wise?

    £25, half a pack of B&H & a curly whirly!! No seriously all fairly meaningless unless you have very similar postcodes. My insurance at my old flat in south manchester was £700 more than at my mums 15 miles away.

    Oh & my is DIS 6 mpg out so wouldn't bother reading into that to much until you've backed it up with maths. I reset mine when I bought the car, it now says 48.1 for the long term average over the last 9000 miles & I've logged every fill I've made and worked it out (as im sad) & its actually...
