Mk7 1,4TDCi. Recalculated I'm getting 460 miles - 500+ miles per tank. Considering the price of diesel here, our rougher roads, and lack of proper motorways on my commute, I'm quite pleased. :rolleyes:

Hi
I have a 1.6 TDCI Zetec S, about 375 in the cold weather, BUT I have stopped leaving the heater on for the whole journey and wow what a difference so far, not even used a quarter of a tank yet, not even half way to it and done 90 miles. I am going to keep doing the short bursts of heat and see if it makes an overall difference. Will keep you posted. :)

I usually get about 320 miles on a full tank before the fuel light comes on. I think the fuel light is a little bit pessimistic though, I usually have about 5-8 litres left in the tank when I refuel. So I think I probably get about 350 miles to the tank for regular town driving.

Heater or aircon?

If you mean the heater, I'm surprised that it reduces your fuel economy that much, as the heat comes from the engine, rather than an actual heating element (etc) and the fan can't be that much of a drain, even on max speed.

The fuel light comes on at a predicted 50miles to empty - so you would probably get 350 - 370 from a tank if you ran it dry.

MK7 1.6 TDCI and currently stuck on 39.9 mpg, never any higher!

Does the aircon make that much difference? I always have it on?

Aircon and climate control do affect your fuel economy, climate control not so much though as the compressor etc isn't running all of the time or at full power all of the time. In my 1.6 petrol I have the EATC on constantly and still average 34-36ish mpg. In a tdci you should really be averaging 45mpg at the very least I'd have thought?

When its running (which won't be all the time if you have EATC, even if the aircon light is on all the time) aircon is supposed to increase fuel consumption by 5 - 10%.
