Real MPG

Post by Cornishman » Sun Sep 13, 2020 7:41 pm

I’m collecting my new 70 plate on Friday, Tiguan match 1.5 petrol manual, can I ask what should expect the MPG should be or I should be getting, just concern as some say 26 around town and 30 and a run, motorway would that be true

I have a Tiguan Allspace 1.5 TSI (150) and have averaged 43.3 mpg over the time I have owned the car. For short trips round town, I probably get 33 mpg and for motorway trips get upper 40s (even with the car fully loaded). I don't drive/brake aggressively and drive within/at the speed limit; I'm sure this helps.

I get 9.6L per 100km as a 4000km long term average 90% of this at highway speed driving 100/110kph

Is nowhere near the claimed figures and is nearly twice what i got in my diesel Passat

I had to read that last sentence twice to make sense if it. It's strange, we brits (and US) talk distance for fuel, the bigger the number the better. You metric guys talk fuel for distance, and the lower the number the better. Hard to switch mindsets :-)

to make it easy for you it equates to just under 29mpg and we have to use 95 octane minimum
