    T6.1 What MPG to expect

    So, after collecting our new T6.1 at start of lockdown, other than having a chance to have a good look over it and sort a few things out, haven’t actually been anywhere in it. So, today had to deliver a pair of speakers to someone approx 60 miles from where we live. so, filled it right up, set...

    [T6_measured] Fickle fuel consumption on MFD – encore

    In March 2020 finally got the long-awaited ECU (Engine Control Unit) software update. Unfortunately it took a while to get a good chance to do some measurements to try to figure out what has been changed. So finally a few weeks back dusted the VCDS and collected all kind of intriguing data. The...

    MPG has just fallen of a cliff after service

    Last week I had my T6 serviced, new brakes all round but nothing else special was done to it. On Saturday and Sunday I drove to Leicester for work, down the M1, foggy so took it easy, no head wind, no rush, and the week before same journey, 41mpg, and I would have expected the same or better...

    LPG TSi - MPG

    So I’ve had the 300ish hp TSI lpg converted about 10,000 miles ago. £29 to fill lpg tank (53ppl) did 270 miles today on that tank. Averages generally between 230and 255 miles depending how and where I drive. Best mod ever!

    Hi all. Would value your opinions / comments. 2 weeks in to ownership now and love it - except the fuel economy. Mixed driving - when on a motorway cruise is set to 70. Otherwise gentle driving with a light right foot. Just filled up and worked out my mpg - 26! 2019 Shuttle, 102 5 speed...

    Discovered two things yesterday...

    On my drive to Czech, through Germany, discovered two things: 1. Adaptive cruise control only goes up to 100mph... 2. The van drives very well at 120mph... Additionally, got 475 miles out of the 80 litre tank driving at silly speeds - mostly between 80 and 95. Have to say the Van was fairly...

    Shell V Power diesel

    A year back, I was touring Spain in my (then) T6 camper. It developed anEGR fault that was splendidly dealt with under warranty by aN excellent Spanish VW dealer. The unofficial advice from the tech was “Don’t ever use cheap fuel, and that I should try to always use Shell V power diesel As was...

    T6 MPG - can this be right??

    Hi guys, Help needed, only had my T6 for a couple of months now. I bought it from Leighton Vans and it has had some modifications 20inch wheels, side bars, roof bars and a Pendle remap to take it to 150bhp. My fuel consumption is horrendous currently getting 21mpg around town and them...

    815 mile range?...

    Evening all. I just filled up my LWB Euro 5 (140) Kombi and have the following on the MFD: Maybe that should be the next challenge! After a few weeks of traffic free commuting I have managed 740 miles from 77.3 litres with 15 miles range left although I expect that could have been more...

    Mpg Swapping From Manual To Dsg

    Hi, anyone gone from a 150/204 manual to DSG 150/204 or vice versa & found any noticeable difference in mpg? Nothing to do with what’s on the mfd vs real mpg...just a simple comparison if you have driven both comparable vehicles for any amount of time. My mate is experiencing 25% extra fuel...

    Mpg...very Happy!

    I have been surprised today. I travelled over 380 miles today from Sussex to Holyhead in my Caravelle Executive and averaged 41.5 MPG. And that is with a Revo tune on a 150 DSG. Very pleased with that.

    150ps Kombi Horrendous Mpg

    Hi guys, I’m new to the VW scene and if I’m honest I’m gutted. I have a 150ps 2016 Kombi and once I fill the tank up from red £80 I’m getting if I’m lucky 330 miles before I’m back in the red again. The chap I brought it off and a local transporter specialist to me have both said to get it in...

    Am I Being Thick?

    I have just had fitted some wolfrace wheels with general grabber tyres along with a few other bits and bobs and my MPG has plummeted!! I’m a proper fairy foot and was getting 43-47mpg on a run, now I struggle to get past 33-34mpg? Can this be purely down to the tyres/wheels?
