    Default Not bad from a 2.8T

    Well my weekly mileage has shot up somewhat since I first got the 2.8T Siggy. I'm now doing approx 350-370 miles per week as which you can imagine is not cheap with such a big engine.

    So I thought I would see whats the best I could get for my money mileage wise and to be honest I was quite impressed.

    When I had my 2.0T the best I got from a tank was 412miles, I've just got this from my 2.8T and still had an eighth of a tank left.
