Is it just me, or have you found that the plastic shroud inside the fuel flap prevents venting AND the use of the large diesel fuel pump nozzles?
Worst full tank so far (in 6,000klm) was the 2nd tank in the car at 6.0l/100klmJoshinthecity
No your not the only one hear. We have three tdi's in our family, two Mk III's and the lastest addition is the 2.0L DSG just taken delivered.
What sort of mileage are you getting? Currently the 2.0L DSG is way behind the MkIII's in this area.
Thats not to bad. Over the past 60,000 km based on my log book I've acheived an overall average of 5.1 L/100km. The only thing that really annoys me about this car is the lack of ABS. I've wrecked 2 sets of Pirelli tyres already by some idiots on the road not looking and forcing me to apply the brakes hard and suddenly. This causes the tyres to flat spot and then make horrible vibrations in the car (this results in new tyres having to be purchased - expensive).Erickordt
The car has so far been strictly HWY cycle at constant 112k/hr. I live in a remote area. I get between 4.8 and 5.3 litres/100km from my MkIII City or HWY cycle.
As far as the 2.0L is concerned I have 7.3L/100Km from the first tank. Havent done the second yet.
