I did a 90 mile round trip yesterday and had a read out of 51.1mpg. I wonder how accurate this is? Anyone else had good mpg figures? My car has done 6700 miles total to date

Saddo that I am I always keep a comparison of mileage between fill ups and compare it to the mpg computer (MFD). The MFD consistently reads around 3% higher than actual on my car.

Tdi Mpg

Also sad and agree with davidp.

My TDI has 7000 on the clock and my average overall is 45.5.

Daily trips to work average around the 51 - 52 mark for each journey in traffic !!

Just got my new EOS a week ago, 2.0TDi, first tank of fuel averaged just 37.7 mpg. Am hoping this will improve as engine runs-in - anybody else getting better fuel economy than 1st few tank fulls?

TDi sport with DSG and cruise

I,m fairly gentntle on my EOS and use cruise all the time and am averaging between 37 to max 43 mpg when filled. The cars done around 5500 miles now and is 8 months old. Must admit was hoping for better economy than I,m getting, yet to do a really long run in her but will check when I do.

As we hail from all over the world here are some conversion factors:

1 US gallon = 3.79 litre
1 Imperial gallon = 4.55 litre

1 litre = 0.26 US gallon
1 litre = 0.22 Imperial gallon

1 imperial gallon = 1.2 U.S. gallons

I do about 30.0 miles per US gallon on highway at speeds of 70 MPH on my Eos and about 22 mpg on my 6 mile commute to work with 10 stop lights on the way which converts to:

Highway: 36 miles per Imperial gallon.
Commute: 26.4 miles per Imperial gallon.
Both not bad given the Eos fun factor!

Am I right guessing you Brits get higher mileage rates because your speed limits are much lower than our rural USA speed limits of 70 MPH on your inter-city roads?

We are happy and spoiled here in the USA - gas is still below $3 per US gallon.

Must be nice. We haven't seen $3.00 around here in a long time (for regular). We are currently at about $3.30. Diesel here is around $3.80.

Terrific fuel economy from 2.0 Litre Turbo Petrol Eos

My wife brags about the 6 litres per 100 kilometres (47 MPG UK or 39 MPG US) economy she gets from her Golf Diesel. On Boxing Day after a 200 kilometre cruise which combined mainly city and some country roads my petrol driven Eos yielded 7.2 litres per 100 kilometres (39 MPG UK or 32 MPG US). And on the weekend both 98 octane petrol and diesel were $1.45 per litre (which is way too much anyway). Soooo I am thinking whats all the fuss with diesel?

My first tank of diesel after 950kms delivered 50mpg. That first 950km was driven very easily during the 1000k run in period. Nothing over 75% throttle. The next tank is shaping up to be much less economical :) But it's been fun :)

There is an added advantage to diesel too...Isn't the diesel version a bit cheaper than the petrol mod? That is not always the case. My diesel landcruiser cost about 10k more than the petrol model so there is no way I will ever get my money back on that, the diesel Eos is a different story :)

see ya

Danny, by your own figures that is a 20% advantage to the diesel!
20% sounds like a lot, 1.2l/100km doesn't; still, that's $17 per 1000km.
I had a gen V Golf 1.9TDI which I traded after 2.5 years for an EOS TDI.
I reckon that I got about 850km per tank (6.5l/100km).
So for with the EOS, and it has only been 11 weeks, or 3 tanks, my guess is about 800km per tank (6.9l/100km).
With both cars, I was/am using about 1l/100km more than VWs' stated economy, which is a combined city/country figure.
Considering that most of my driving is city based, I am not unhappy with what I am getting.

Bryan, the EOS TDI is $2,000 cheaper than the TFSI, so we are already in front, the better economy is a big bonus!
Some may argue that the TFSI is more "fun" to dive, but I rather like diesels and the way they deliver power, even with the turbo lag at low revs.
PS, I too have a Landcruiser TDI (100 series that I traded in a 12yo 80 series TD for in 2003) which cost $12,500 more than the petrol V8.
At the time, I calculated that the pay-back on the diesel because of the better economy was about 22 years.
Any comments on the 200 series V8 TDI released last month?

I concede the the economic advantage in regards to the diesel but I do like to hit the exhilarator in the T FSI and I can get a 600 k range out of a tank around Melbourne and the surrounds so I am very happy with that. And when I want to be frugal I take my wife's 1.9 L TDI Golf which is a great car!

TDI consumption

I've just filled up today with my fifth tankfull having done over 2100 miles on four tanks. Can't complain at this!! My daily drive helps, I do 30 miles each way, all on dual carriageway (except first and last half mile) at about 60~65 mph and very little around town.Air con is only on as a demisting aid for about 5 mins.
I've always managed decent mpg figures on most cars I've owned (including 10 Diesel X-Trails when I was working for Nissan) but this is the best yet. I'm looking forward to the engine getting loosened up now.
