Just took the Gti out on an awesome little adventure in the wet/rain/falllen leaves and was using upto 6000rpm heavily in 3/4th gear, and got the brakes squelling like a little pig and the mpg average said 15.4mpg which i think is pretty amazing taking the speed/throttle usage into consideration.

I say you all go out right now and enjoy your favourite backroad with ESP off  !!!

Not mad just a bit looney about driving !!!, needed to release some stress, nothing better than concentrating at the point where the headlights meet the road in the distance and planting the throttle and adjusting the steering to suit, just be careful of those deep puddles and those leaves, had some stoole stopping moments but all part of the fun, especially those 4wheel slides !  :driver:

i don't condone Drink driving unless its on the playstation ! LOL  :laugh:

enjoy that bottle, i think i shall have a tipple of some cognac ! too  :drinking:

I can manage 35 mpg on a decent run to a track day but when I'm there the worst (or best depending on how you look at it) has been 9 mpg :happy2:

My average is about 24 and I usually get around 280 miles per tank. Last week I drove like a granny everywhere and managed to get 365 miles out of ONE tank  :jumpmove:.........BUT.......it bored the sh*t out of me and it is not what I bought the car for so the usual 280 mile tank will resume as of today  :rolleye:

....

Worst: 11 mpg (on a CarLimits day course)
Europe: 22 mpg (more opportunities!)
UK: 28 mpg
Best: 32 mpg (very rarely)

I drive my DSG 95% of the time in Manual and use the gears.
