Fuel economy

The turbo-charged 1.8 TSI lump is considerably frugal when driven at typical speeds and returns a claimed 9.5L/100km (urban), 5.5L/100km (extra urban) and 7L/100km (combined).

Despite my reputation of having a lead foot, I respectfully improved fuel consumption from 11L/100kms down to 10.8L/100kms over 3 days in mixed urban and extra urban driving. I’m not sure who the previous journalist was, but I surrender my crown. I’ve gone wimpy apparently.
