The range sounds about normal TBH for short runs/ town usage. I've found my MPG varies massively depending on the driving. On the motorway I normally see 55 but in town it can drop as low as 30.

if your gauge is like mine it takes a long time to start to drop, so 50 wont have filled it and it will drop away quicker.

I can get 100 miles plus before it drops below the 7/8th line  :grin:

only proper way to tell what your cars doing is Brim it, record miles, empty, fill, miles and calculate

think there is even summat on facebook that does it all for ya but i am geeky and keep my own record  :whistle:

Mine moves regardless of filling it quickly somehow a drinker! yet half a tank or less it does hold the needle a little longer....confusing the situation even more!

So 10miles left haven't driven it like a mad person, put £50 took me to 'full' Guage status of 390 miles. I drove nice and gently and done 79 miles it moves 3 thick lines up! I am still baffled at that! Wished I had my mk4 tdi 130 as that seemed to be better and was remapped!

Do u think it needs vagcom or is this generally how a GTD acts? Short journeys I do at min well anything between 5 to 15 miles between sites...

What MPG does the screen say you're getting? As obviously that is directly correlational to the tank range.

10 miles left probably means there is about 5 litres left in the tank. £50 at £1.13 per litre is 44 litres meaning you'll have 49 litres in the tank. A full tank is 55 litres plus whatever extra it takes to fill the filler neck, so you are probably 7 or 8 litres of diesel short of a full tank to begin with.

None of us can really comment further until you do the sums properly using the brim to brim method.
Red Mk6 gone replaced with a white Mk7 which has gone too. Green Mk2 here to stay.
