Default Fuel Consumption

Hello people, i live in england and i own a 2001 A4 tdi 130 5speed. From 10 of fuel i get around 60 - 65 miles wen driving slowly. Does that sound reasonable? the fuel prices are 1.30 per litre. Only asking because i think it should be giving me more miles.

10 of fuel divided by 1.30 per litre equals ~ 7.7 litres... or about 2.0 American gallons.

30-32 miles per American gallon is not very good. Even the PD 130 engine should do better than that.
