In answer to your question, I regularly achieve 34mpg + on my daily commute and my long term average is just over 29mpg. The worst I have ever seen is around 19mpg  :P

Average around 25mpg in city driving and, because I can't help myself, 30mpg on the motorways.

Today I was stuck at 60mph because of traffic and whether and was getting well over 50mpg for ages, but then it all cleared and I booted it  :grin:

The trouble with the GTI is I find it too difficult to not floor it given the first opportunity.

Lowest I've had is bout 20mpg but that was some hard driving.

The GTI isn't just a machine. It's very much a living, breathing thing.

Those figures closely mirror mine.

I can see your point John_o but it is reasuring to know we have a car capable of some economic runs if we desire. Can't say many Ford ST/CTR drivers can say the same  :happy2:
