Further to my above post. Today I repeated the above journey and improved the trip computer figure to 90.1 mpg over 110 miles. Later at the end of the trip the figure was 89.0 mpg over 353 miles.

I also improved the theoretical total range, I manage to reach the maximum 1000 miles range left, with 130.7 miles already driven = total 1130.7 miles.

Car now owned for 2.5 years and 30,000 miles, fuel app currently shows 53.3 mpg calculated on full-full fill ups. Current mileage is 120,000. Trip computer always overeating by at least 15-20+ %. DPF regenerates every 300 miles during town driving and 400+ on longer motorway trips. Seats very comfortable when seated for 4-6 hrs +.

Hi. Just wondering if something is wrong with my MK6 golf GTD.
I’m only getting 26.5 / 27 mpg and a range of 325 miles for a full tank.
I guess something is wrong. Anyone got any ideas what could be causing it?

Depending on where you are, traffic and driving style, that might be OK.

For example, I live in Jersey, it’s a small island with a 40 mph speed limit. Although not a VW at the time, my old diesel car would average 25mpg and get just over 300 miles to a tank, but when driving through France, I got just short of 600 miles from a tank when I was on the motorways.

I guess I’m just trying to say that diesel isn’t always better than petrol if you make lots of short, stop and start journeys.

This is not to say you don’t have an issue, but worth considering your individual driving circumstances.

I would guess you have a problem, on a motorway as the speed limit you should be getting around 50mpg depending upon the temp outside 45-55 winter v summer.
Does it smell of burnt plastic as the only thought is that it could be stuck in a regen mode, the mpg really takes a hit when that is active.
Have you checked to make sure the brakes are not binding.
