Default P229F and Horrid MPG

Hey all, as the title states I canít get rid of P229F and my mpg has been 10-11 around town. The dealer has had it twice and only resets the code and sends me on my way. The second time they did a ECM update last week that was supposed to fix it. I have a 2016 Touareg TDI with 64k miles and all the warranties.

My questions..

First, what can I do to get VW to replace nox sensors and other as needed DPF components? This is getting annoying!! I am going to submit a complaint to VWOA if they canít get it fixed on this next trip to the dealership.

Second.. Does anyone know or think my issues with P229F are causing poor mpg? Also, I should not the car is using quite a bit of DEF as well.

Thanks everyone!!
