Bah, full tnak with mixed city/highway driving (highway driving done at 115km/h+) with a 4K tranny in my 84GTI...... I get apprx 475km per tank every time, using about 36.5L every time (+/- 1L)
That works out to....... mmmm....... 33mpg?
Here, it costs me $22 to fill up with DIESEL for crying out loud!
As for mileage, if I'm not pushing it, I've gone as far as 740km on a tank.
Normal everyday driving gets me between 500 and 600km in the summer, 450 to 550km in the winter. My mileage has been dipping since I got the turbodiesel put in, though. I just can't keep my foot off the go pedal
That's filling up with 32 liters of diesel fuel (I never let it dip into the red).
I just got 26.5 mpg on the highway doing 75-80 for a full tank with about a 30-40 mph headwind, thats with a 1.8 16v 2h tranny and 2 adults and 2 kids. I thought that was pretty good, can't help but keep my foot out of it in the city. Oh thats right i drive country roads everyday
and i get a constant 23-25 mpg.
