Mk5 R32 MPG

8 posts in this topic

I'm in the position of being able to order a new R32 DSG as my next company car.

Just wondering what the economy is like??

Does it do more than 30mpg on an 80mph motorway cruise??

Hi, much thirstier than the 4-cylinder cars. You can achieve a 30mpg consumption on fairly gentle mororway driving, but budget for at very best 26-27 overall.

Tootle on country lanes and you will see about 33-34 not why you bought it ! grin.gif

Motorways 27 - 28

Around town .... just walk ! grin.gif

£50 will get you 300 miles sometimes a bit more sometimes a bit less

If you take it on the track snd give it some welly you'll see about 6-8 shocked.gif169144-ok.gif

Over the last 10K miles with roughly 95% of that on Motorways I’ve averaged a DIS reading of 29.8MPG.

I sit at 80 MPH and i now know how to drive it frugally so i achieve constant 32MPG. I came back from Sheffield in a hurry on Thursday early am at an almost constant 95MPH and still managed 27.7MPG.

On Saturday i drove up the Northumberland coast with my lady very leisurely and with no rush, this was a 120 mile round trip and the DIS showed 37.3MPG when i got home!

Cane it and you will see low 20's easily

Hope that helps

As people have quoted 30mpg isnt out of the question if you are careful but trust me, once bitten you will be rather heavy on the old right foot most of the time 169144-ok.gifgrin.gif
