    Fuel gauge going down QUICK

    Hi, first time posting. Upgraded my T4 to a T6 and the fuel gauge seems to be going down really quickly!! It might just be me being paranoid, but I wanted to get some second opinions. These are my readings after a 30min round trip. I have the van booked in for a remap, would that help fuel...

    Fuel economy difference between t6 and t6.1 California

    I‘m considering buying a t6 but am put off by the fuel consumption of 9 litres per 100 km on a van with 4 motion dsg and 204ps. The same model t6.1 with newer 150ps motor seems to do a more respectable 7 litres per 100 km. These numbers are from sprit As far as I understand the key...

    Estimated Range on Dashboard

    On Friday afternoon I filled the van with diesel the estimated range was around 495 miles at the garage: as we drove up the M6 to Birmingham the estimated range increase to 640 miles - at one point the range was going up by 5 miles every few minutes. Any ideas why ? I put it down to the warm...

    is there much difference in real life mpg between the 102 and the 110 T30?

    Hello, I am Andy from the Isle of Mull. We are wanting to buy a transporter panel van, not to be converted to a camper as this will become our only every day vehicle. We are looking forward to having nights out camping in it so will make a simple sleeping platform and will also want to remove...

    Would a Remap with 20” affect my MPG?

    Hi, I have a 2016 vw t6, I was after it getting remapped, hopefully to the 150bhp and 330 torque. But I'm running on 20inch wheels, 265/40/20. Would it make any difference to my mpg as I've went bigger in tyres, and will the drive be as smooth increasing the bhp on bigger wheels. Might sound...

    50 mpg. FINALLY CRACKED IT!!

    ***PLEASE NOTE THIS IS NOT AN MPG BRAGGING POST*** I have been a long term sceptic of claims of the T6,s ability to return decent mpg given my inability to get my factory 150 DSG kombi much above mid 30,s mpg during, NORMAL DRIVING. It was claimed and consequently demonstrated by Oli...

    Has anybody decided that paying extra for a branded fuel is saving money in spite of the extra cost?

    I have had my 2017 T6 trendline (150 bhp?) For just over 2 years and 11000miles ( thanks, covid!). I have always filled up at Morrisons, can't recall anywhere else. I know 'they' say to use a branded fuel every so often to 'clean things out'. I last refilled with Shells 'economic' diesel ( not...

    [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...
