Ive got a A3 8P 2.0 Tdi and from brim to light on - I just got 500 miles. I know i could get more if i was driving more carefully.
What do you get on average?

I too have the 8P 2.0TDi, I get a little more than 500 on a full tank driving on A & B roads and town driving (not city).

Though when I only fill to a half tank - I don't know if it's psychological or weightsaving - but I get about 300miles from the half tank to the 50mi warning/first red line = 600+miles to a full tank.

Probably too many variables involved to compare unless you are comparing two identical cars and driving style , road conditions etc etc , and that is almost impossible.
Best case will be to get as many as you can for your specific situation.

Don't know yet. I filled her up on the 22.2.2021 and driven since then 1800km and still have about 7/16 of tank to go.
Only thing I can say; it is dirt cheap to use.
Passat GTE 2020.
 
Damn, I thought Quattro gave worse MPG than a FWD. I've got a FWD 2.0 TDI and I get 520miles @ 51litres...I suspect I would get another 40miles before completely emptying the tank.
