    When cruising along the motorway (at 80mph/130kph) how far do you guys get on a tank  ~350m/550km?  Just trying to plan my pit-stops 🙂

    Mine averages 21mpg.  I clearly drive it with more gusto than most – which is as it should be, imho.

    Sounds like we have a lot of miss daisy pants on the forum.  LOL.

     

    Only messing.  Well, at least a little bit.

    Guys, I really was asking specifically for when on a long cruise on the motorway.  I’ve got 900 miles to cover in two days, so at 28mpg that’s 6.16 mpl x 51 litres = 314 miles per tank.  So looks rather dicey to do it in 3 legs … right I’ll plan for 4 then, cheers.

    If you’re worried about fuel, you shouldn’t have bought an RS haha

    I did a 400 mile round trip from one tank – averaged 34mpg, but had to resist the urge to put my foot down, as when you are getting towards the end of the tank, a quick burst away from the lights will have an immediate impact on your ‘miles to empty’.

    I was cruising at 70 mph for a majority of the journey.

    I do 5 miles twice a day to work and back and get 23mpg.

    I did a trip of 250 miles to Dorking and back and got 34mpg with the odd hard acceleration in 3rd.

    Daily-driver . Always drive with “sport” on – the best I can get on normal stop-start runs is 21 mpg.  Managed 30 mpg on a 400 mile motorway round trip
