Over 5 years and 13k miles

:shocked:   Barely worth getting it out of the garage.
150 mile a week 1.75h a day for commuting. The TDI does 55mpg on a run so the GTI rare get used for the similar journey's.  I did use it a few years ago to goto Scotland, due to the amount of speed cameras the speed was kept to 60-70 and so averaged iirc 38, I cannot remember but I did post it here at the time.
Current mileage on the mk6 is 13780 and it will be the same in ...March  2015 when its 5 year old. Even the mk1s mileage is just over 90k.
Thats why I think its pointless me getting rid of the 6 for a 7R and why i need to reduce my car count.

More than I remember  :smiley:
I averaged 43 on a trip up and back to Scotland a few months back on twisty A roads. Not bad for a car like this, suprised a mate who went with me.
Imo switch the aircon off and if its DSG knock at least 10% off any manual MPG figures anyone gives you. I just cannot get a mk5 or mk6 DSG to have as good MPG as the manual.

just done my 1st long motorway run (220miles) in my mk6 gti after 2 weeks of ownership, and averaged 35mpg, at 100 miles in I was averaging 37mpg. daily run to work which is about 10-12 miles of town and dual carriageway driving I'm getting between 32-35 when taking it steady, and around 24-25 when I'm not  :whistle:

I'll have had my Mk2 for 5 years in February. I've done 3,400 miles in it.  :laugh:

25 mpg for me but I didn't buy it for fuel economy. Sometimes it touches 30mpg on a motorway run of distance. I will cover around 6K this year.

Very pleased with the price of fuel at the moment !

Yeah but your mk2 is a show car.

Nobody has a mk6 gti as just a show car   :tongue: :grin:
