Golf MK4 1.8 GTI-T MPG
« on: 02 August 2008, 11:27 »
Just wondering what miles per gallon people get on average if their 1.8 turbos?  I have had a maximum of 42.something but average about 32mpg.

1.8t AGU

Depends highly how I drive.I only do around town miles really(SE london) if I drive smart,Gradual pregression 1500-2300rpm shifts ,high gear as possible,Lots of engine braking using the gearbox,least amout of brakes etc etc I can 28mpg on a short 4 mile journey to work somtimes 30mpg.If i drive fairly normally I get around 25mpg odd driving like a wayne kerr on empty roads around 18-20 mpg Never really tested the car on motorway since getting the temo sender fixed.Don't think it would do more than early 30's as 5th gear seems really short and doesn't feel like its at ease anything about 70-80mph really

I don't really know how people get averages of 30-40 mpg.I think it depends highly on where you live and it seems alot of people on these forums are farmers!  :rolleyes: :grin:

I just come back from my brothers wedding in Torquay, having to drive down from Manchester.

There and back cost me just over £110 in petrol, which is not bad at, seeing there and back is 500 miles. I averaged around 38/42 MPG on the motorway with a average speed of 75/80.

Happy with the cost , as it would of cost me and the girlfriend nearer £200 for the train there.

First time I have been down that part of Devon..f**k me..how many huge hills are there??!!  Not sure my clutch licked it down there
