Title: fuel consumption
Post by: blue metal on June 03, 2012, 06:18:40 PM
Well that is the first 200 miles.
refilled at same pump
46 mpg seems OK
how does that compare with other 115 tdi engines?

It all depends on your style of driving, auto/manual, terrain, mother in laws weight etc, but I'd say that was about right.

as mad has said,
i used to get on average 38mpg round town but that was driving slowly etc,once had mine up to 59 mpg at 60 mph but that was a rarity.

For regular driving 35>45 is expected, lower in towns, higher on motorways so yours is good :)

For an older style engine lugging a 1600Kg car the MPG they get it excellent.
