Ive got the 1.6 petrol and has anyone else noticed that driving in 4th rather than 5th @ 40mph increases MPG(on the insta-comsumption anyway) does for me consistantly, Im not entierly sure why but it does for me. Been doing it the last few weeks and seems to make a difference. Normall get between 320-350 to a tank-Current tank was on 280miles and the 50 mile light came on, Can do more than 50 on the yellow light, drive 90% city miles, Drive like a 20year old lad sometimes, drive like an eco warrior the others kinda balances itself out a suppose. Got a J1 Induction Kit and Milltek Cat Back these will dent the MPG slightly.

I reckon its because you are using engine braking more to regulate your speed rather than coasting or footbraking. B)

Quick question. You guys are all very knowledgeable so hoping you can help.

Last week, I was a bit low on petrol so went to the Morrisons near my work. I only put in £25 coz I always use the Tesco just beside my house. Anyway, since then (and i've put in Tesco fuel again this past Monday) my MPG is falling. The car has only done around 1200 miles and it was doing nicely and my MPG was rising, but this week the car has felt sluggish.

Any clues anyone ??? Thanks, Jackie

How many miles does your tank have left when the light comes on? Mine states 50miles - is that the same for everyone?

I'm getting 41MPG from my 1.6 petrol, was hoping for closer to the 48 quoted figure as I'm a very gentle driver but my car only has 250 miles on the clock so hopefully it'll improve as the engine does more mileage.

Mines got over 5k miles on it now and has never even got 40mpg (real mpg, car has quoted 44)!

I did manage to get my 1.6 diesel to show 60mpg one day, but it was just so boring. Average driving I'm getting mid 50's....

anyone getting less than 40mpg on a mk7 diesel impress's me! This current tank of fuel, I've been putting the foot down trying to get the lowest mpg possible and the lowest its been is low 40's

Just stay in 2nd gear for speeds of up to 60mph, 3rd for 70! Or were you referring to only using reverse gear?
