That makes something around 6.2 litres/100 km, right? Thats very good news. I've read some magazine testers complaining about 9 or more litres per 100km. I guess those guys push the pedal to the floor in their tests.
Sorry, I used a US gallon conversor. The Harper31 38mpg means 7.4 litres/100km. That's no so good news. But for a mainly urban drive I think it's not as far from the specifications as I had read somewhere.
just checked mine after 300 odd miles in my 1.7TDi and its done 55.3mpg, very happy with that. Going away for the weekend and will reset it and see what it does, quite a lot of the trip will be on cruise
I didn't mean to start any 'consumption war' in the forums. Obviously diesel engines have lower fuel consumption. I am sure all of us have good reasons for the engine choice we have done for our Mokkas. In my case the reasons are:
The 1.7 diesel sounds like a bag of nails. The VAG 2.0 TDI is far better more powerful and more refined. They should of fitted the 2.0 litre diesel in the Mokka.
I don't do enough miles to have a diesel
