It's pretty nice averaging 600-650 miles on a tank with the mk5 compared to 300-350 with the mk2.

Happy 2011  :smiley:

you get 600 miles per tank  :undecided:

I get around 450-500 depending on how ive been running it.  Saw 570 when i did a cumbria to devon to london to oxford road trip lol.

Why do i have poor economy :(

I drive like an old man at a steady 70mph on my commute to work... weekends I'm a little bit more heavy footed  :smiley:

1 Year of motoring with the mk5 Golf GT TDi now... times flies! 20,000 miles later, I've definately grown to like the comfort and economy of it compared to the mk2 GTi, though I still miss the 'fun' factor. I have made a few little mods... front armrest, black VW grille badge, front votex splitter and R32 style rear lower bumper.... also a TDI-Tuning box which has improved BHP/Torque/MPG, so will def consider a remap in the future. Am certainly happier with the styling of the car now.
