Have been getting between 35.7-36.2 on average of late. However mine is Aug 2010 registered and has 60700k miles, so swings and roundabouts   :sad:

When the orange light comes on I put more petrol in.

I couldn't tell you what MPG it does and couldn't really care. I just love driving it   :smiley:

Did a long distance drive in mine yesterday, and at one point it got up to 40 MPG.  I think that's pretty good.

Average though is more around the mid-30s.

Driving style counts for a lot though - in general I drive sensibly and have avoided "spirited" sessions thus far. 

Also I noticed that the GTI prompts you to go up to 6th gear even at just over 40 mph, which is what I've been doing.

On a longish run today, also nudged the unfamiliar territory of 40mpg today.  Bit of a novelty  :cool:

Ahhh, figures I can only dream of. The Brera currently returns around 20mpg. Actually, no matter how I drive it I get 20mpg +/- 1mpg.

That's why I want a nice, economical GTi!!

Keep dreaming  :tongue:  40mpg is the exception rather than the rule in a gti. 

Predictably my average has now dropped down to 33mpg, which is still better than my normal average.  Got another 250 mile run coming up this weekend, so I may yet hit another high, before it plummets back down to my usual 27-29mpg.
