    Talking 1.9 CDTi 16v CR1

    Just checked the MPG for my last full tank of diesel, almost all of the mileage was done with the air conditioning on, wipers on and highly amplified radio on as well. Spent over 6 hours around London virtually stood still and some slow periods on the way back up to Yorkshire, had a steady trip to York and few local trips not sparing the horses, enjoying showing up 2.0 TDI VAG drivers and the final average miles per gallon for the full tank was:

    53.1

    Very pleased with the figure and I was not trying to be the most economical driver, just steady driving with the odd blast. The car now has 18k on it and I have had the CR1 tuning box on since about 7k, everything has run perfectly and the economy just keeps getting better. Not that I would try but I bet the MPG could be increased a fair bit if I tried to, but I enjoy air conditioning and the odd blast.

    I think the GM diesel 1.9 must be the best diesel there is for performance and economy.

    Best I'm getting from the same set up is 48mpg thats with a mixture of 2/3 motorway + 1/3 town driving.
    I dont accept the reading from the onboard computer as the CR1 throws it out by showing better MPG that you are actually getting.
    Still not complaining.

    Yes, the CR1 makes it over read by 10%.

    The MPG is still impressive though, 50 true MPG is easily achievable.

    The performance of the 1.9 with a CR1 is unreal though, it's much more powerful & even the engine note seems more aggressive. Like its on steroids lol

    The way it hurls the car forward still impresses me now.

    Talking MPG Check

    My mileage is calulated from a brim to brim fill up, not the computer, the computer is a big fat liar, that is why I am so happy with the genuine 53 MPG over 650 miles.

    My brother says we diesel drivers are too tight and obssesed with MPG, he says if you do 60 MPH on the motorway and check what the fuel computer says it will say TIGHT *******!

    enjoying showing up 2.0 TDI VAG drivers
    That's until you pull up next to a 2.0 TDI golf which also has a tuning box, and you won't be smiling then

    What's the output of a Golf with a box on then?

    The VAG 2.0 doesn't rev enough, I drive one regularly.

    The torque is more than the 1.9 & spins up slightly quicker, but it tails off quicker.

    It would be very close between the two.

    I drove a golf 140 for 2 years. I had the occasion to have little "performance battle" on the motorways, and from say 60 to 100 the golf pulls away by say 5 car lengths. needed my license for work so I never went past a ton tho.

    That engine is the same on thats in the new 170bhp audis and vw, just remapped. I was talking to a guy from diesel car who said the stated VAG ouput is 140, but most run around at 160bhp after their rolling road tests. They use the direct pump, not common rail, so arent as easy to get cheap power from with a box, but respond very well to remaps apparently.
