Audi TT (8J) Range Issue


Registered User

Had my TT for just over a year now and noticed in the past month that the fuel consumption has shot up. When I used to fill the car up it would indicate a range of about 400 miles. In the last month I am having to fill up more and noticed the range only showing as 250. I cant see any leaks in the engine bay or any smell of fuel. I have had the thermostat changed and that sits nicely at 90. I also had the fume recirculation pump and carbon filter replaced.

Was wondering if the MAF may need a clean to see if that helps. I will scan it later to see if any faults show up, nothing on the dash.

Has anyone else seen this issue with there TT?

Many Thanks

It's probably not what it is, but I monitor my fuel consumption closely and there's no doubt that if driving in wet weather, economy drops markedly. I suppose we forget how much resistance water can cause, the tyres having to cut through standing water.
