The 50 mpg club

482 posts in this topic

Well, I am seeking admission now. In my 94 80 TDi Saloon with 173k on the clock I am getting between 56 and 58 mpg every tanks. No rough DIS calcs here, but volumes used and miles driven.....

I'm out of the club I'm afraid. I figure you kinda need a car for this, and the van doesn't get up to the 50's.

Dis 1 resets every journey (as long as stopped for more than 30 mins I think)

Di2 doesnt reset unless you reset it.

I think most people are not averaging the figures they say on here from day one but for a journey on Dis1. But not for 50 yards or rest once moving etc!

Didn't think to check DIS2 as that was after a 35 minute drive so it wasn't just a short run.

2.0 TDi DSG... so can be done in autos wink.gif

That's me tendering my resignation from the 50mpg club.

It's been 2.5 years, but time to scare myself silly with a petrol engine for a bit.

50mpg should see you hit close to 600 miles per tank. That's the realistic way of measuring it.

The warning light comes on with about 9 litres left in the tank IIRC. so if you fill up when the light comes on you'll get about 45 - 47ltrs in as standard.

Anyone here use BP Ultimate Diesel? We have BP fuel cards so i have filled up twice with it.

I could now be a member of the club. Averaging 52 on Dis, but 54mpg on calculation. Only used to get 47-48 with normal stuff.

I've recently looked into this, and the manual says 7 litres left when the light comes on

Which is still loads of fuel
