    V6 2.5 tdi w reg fuel consumption

    Hi was just wondering how many miles people are getting out of a full tank from a v6 2.5 tdi the car is auto/triptonic so was wondering what kind of miles people get.

    Currently from a full tank im getting around 250 miles and thats from £60 seems abit steep.

    Thanx

    because its a tank, that's the price you pay

    my fiesta does the same mileage on 20 quid

    with fuel at near £5 a gallon, you buy 12 gallons for 60, then that works out to 20mpg
    not very good!

    once had a ford v6 3.0, petrol, did 8-10 to the gallon, didnt keep that long!

    golf 1.6 £55 250 miles. Very poor. but the car is also 10 Years old.

    Ouch, something wrong there.

    I have a 2.2 TDci Ford and get 500+ miles from a £60 tank.

    Skoda Octavia VRS 2.0 Petrol.

    Full tank £65, 360 miles. Normally runs at 30-32 mpg

    Seriously?!?! I have the 1.8 gti turbo, coming on 12 years old now and I could happily do 250 miles on £40! Even with a heavy foot Think it might be worth getting it looked over if your paying that much?
