Default Fuel economy on 97 jetta 1.9 aaz (idi)

hi all,

i was looking at some similar cars for sale and some of them mentioned '900km, 1000km' per tank. now keep in mind this is for the 1.9 idi (aaz), not the tdi engine. so, since i get around 850km average, with my best being around 900km, i fell a bit short changed.

so for all of you that have similar cars, engines, what do you get, realistically? km or mpg wise?

finally, if i am lacking a bit in the mpg department, where can i go locally (calgary) to get it repaired, and what sort of things would i look for? fuel filter? injectors? timing belt? what would help me with that magic km amount?

thanks,

rico

Well you are doing better than me right now, my 95 1.9td golf gets 700-750/tank. I think that my timeing might be a little off and I want to get my injectors checked. I also live in Calgary and I think GCL diesel or 2square would be good options.

Very recently I accidently abbreviated my exhaust system from the resonator back. This now gives me 750-800/tank, zero back pressure on the turbo and it's not that much louder.
I also hope to get my eccomony up to around 1000/tank in the near future.

get an intercooler, it's the best way to get 5.2L/100km.

Rico, I generally get about 900 to 950 km. per tank in mixed/city driving. (going to 950 km. makes me pretty nervous, though) Keep in mind that my Passat has a 70 litre tank; I don't think the Golf or Jetta tanks are that big.

Having said that, this summer I drove to Edmonton from North Vancouver on one tank of diesel (odometer read almost exactly 1200 kms.) of course this was all highway, but speeds ranged from 90 km/hr to 120 km/hr. There was still about 5 litres left in the tank based on the fillup amount. Then, on the way home, I did it again - 1200 km/tank. You can bet I was crowing to the relatives a bit!

I think the mileage you are seeing is pretty normal, and probably better than mine if you are basing it on a 55 litre tank.

I try to allways use the cruise.i'm not good with the kilometer stuff. could you convert. and let me no in MPG what you get. oh and as far as high RPMS. NOT. this thing falls on its face at 3500 rpm.Later Gater.
