that day I set out for work (35mile drive) and as I got about a mile from home the fuel light came on, and i realised i left my wallet at work. I've never feathered an accelerator so lightly in my life.

Was about to say don't worry i only get about 500 from my quattro, but then i realised yours is 2wd so has a 7L bigger tank. Thinking about it, that is still similar MPG to what i get.

i did scan it using a snap on (i think) machine not a vag com. Came up with only one fault being a worn engine mount. That was about 8 months ago though!!!

Have you manually calculated it with miles to tank divide by number of litres etc, as obc can vary on reading
Good tracker try fuelly.com

Best I have seen is this:

Albeit after only a few miles. Didn't get a pic at the end of the trip, but it was averaged at 36.X over the 50 odd miles home.

How on earth did you manage that? most I've ever seen is 26mpg

Looks like we are both new cab owners ! I got a 2.4 Petrol...... MPG isnt stunning on the computer but I'm keeping a paper record so I can work it out properly to compare. I even had the roof down today, heated seats rule :)

i have only had mine 2 weeks, how long you had yours?? i love mine, always makes me smile when i drive it lol. a friend of mine had the 2.4, nice sound when you floor it with the roof down. i couldnt go back to petrol now, last car car a mk4 golf gt tdi and i would hate the difference in mpg from diesel to petrol, would be scared to drive it lol. i think i missed a trick today not gettin out for a drive with the roof down, but had it down the other day, and your right, defo a heated seats thing, gets a bit nippy at this time of year.
