Jesus, that's crazy. I must drive like a Granny I'm getting 400miles which equates to 33mpg average per tank. [400รท12.1gallons]

I don't tend to drive fast very often to be honest,  just seems that's all I can get out of her

Thanks for the help guys! So based on the responses, I'm looking to get around 30-35mpg which I'm happy with.

Next question.... Manual or DSG?

Would love a DSG but read a few things with reliability. What are your thoughts?

I've had my edition 30 for 6 years and do a combination of motorway and country lanes, I've never had above 28mpg as an average:-)

If I cruise at 50mph on the motorway i can get it to 34mpg instantaneously.....

What do other folks get as an average mpg?

After owning 2 GTI's both DSG and now my 3rd also DSG lol, I would say that it depends all on the driving and how heavy your right foot is.

I can get between low 20s and mid 30s local driving and on the motorway, I can get high 30s. Again, all depending on how aggressive you drive.

Love it and it shall love you back haha, always smiles per gallon with the GTI  :happy2:!

MPG is not the defining factor, it's just something i have to take into consideration due to my daily commute.

Just wanted to see what people were getting  :P
