Unlucky purchase. I had a right set to with Audi over my 1.6TDI. I got one when they first came out. Ran it for two years and was more than pleased to see the back of it.
The computer may tell you it's returning 50+, I can assure you when measured at the pump (Which I kept record for EVERY tank...

By the time I'm finished with the car the Stamp is immaterial!! However the last two services were done by Audi and on both occasions they 'forgot' to stamp the book. I appreciate the fact that I have an 'Upmarket' car but I don't appreciate being ripped off and cornered as it...
I've had this problem on my 2010 1.6TDI which is supposed to return easy 60+. Despite regular battles with Audi UK nothing could be resolved. I've been lucky to get 48mpg!!
Does your car have a DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter)? If so get that checked. Other than that I would certainly replace...
I spoke to Audi garage today. Apparently with the 2009-on models only an approved Audi Garage can reset the service indicator and only if 'THEY' service it. Sure got us by the short and curly's now. Certainly the best way to make money. Can anyone tell me if it can be re-set by any VAGCOM...
Just gave my car a good seeing to. Done all the usual servicing jobs but can't seem to lose the servicing indicators on the DIS or Mileometer. Do I have to get this done via VAGCOM or can I do it without?
