    Default For the V6 Petrol owner's - What MPG are you getting??

    Dont worry, this isnt a Diesel Vs Petrol Thread, or a B Vs C thread, just curious really...

    Basically in my first week of ownership of a V6 GSi B, i did 276 miles, not hanging about, driving so i could listen to the exhaust note(Sad but true..) and it returned what i think is a pretty respectable 24mpg..(52 litres of fuel to refill it yesterday..)

    Just wondering what the other V6 Petrol owners on here were getting out of theirs as a comparison.

    Is 24mpg out of a V6 Good, Bad, indifferent, bearing in mind i was hooning about for probably half those miles!
