    I get out of mine about 23mpg around town, and on a run on the motorway about 33mpg, I did get 38mpg at a steady 55mph on the A41 sometime back. I am pleased with the consumption from mine, no doubt if you drive hard you will use a lot more, I have heard that the police can empty the tank in 100 miles when driving hard. . What do you get out of yours then....

    According to manual the consuption driving in a city it´s arround 14.3 - 15.8 L/100km. In my case do to the short trips while driving on my small city I hit around 17L/100km. (With A/C all time)
    On highways according to manual it´s around 7.6 - 7.8 L/100km.
    I guess being a V6 it´s no so bad.

    If you get in traffic you'll be lucky to see 15 urban, 19 under normal urban, and around 28-32 on the run.

    And if you don't believe me buy one and see, 6 cyls all going slurp slurp slurp.

    annoyingly Mrs Gsi's signum fairs better than my Gsi.. and they're both mapped 3.2's.... she will get an average 30mpg on a similar route to me, whereas i struggle to get it above 25mpg..and yes we both have 'heavy feet'....

    in fact , running a 2.8T would save me money on fuel..

    My trip computer aveages about 27.8 mpg and i go everywhere, not bad for big engine. Keep speeds just under 85 mph on the motorway and you will have no prob's but couple more mph and BOY she will drink it.
