I once got about 40mpg out of my ts with a new maf and lambda sensor on a steady drive to Gatwick and back on a very cold day, It wasnt worked out by briming the tank but just going by the gauge.

Mine seems to do about 29mpg, according to the trip comp. That's shuffling though the Bristol rush hour I guess.

I did this in June 2009 in my 146Ti (I've copied and pasted from the 145 forum that I posted it on at the time):

I now have to travel 140 miles a day to work (only 3 times a week thankfully) and I thought I would share this.

I did 420 miles on £40.75 worth of petrol. The fuel was £1 per litre so thats 40.75 litres. This equals 8.98 gallons.

420 miles / 8.98 gallons = 46.77 miles per gallon!!

This was only possible by the fact that it is all motorway and that I was driving at 60mph.

I know its boring to drive at 60 but I find motorways boring anyway at any speed.

I think its quite amazing for a 2 litre petrol.

Just goes to show how much we are now being shafted on fuel though.

The train :(

I would be concerned if I didn't get 400 miles from a tank (around the 60 Litre mark when full) - I think that equates to about 26mpg. Someone did work it out for me but I can't remember what they said.

My daily drive is 4/5ish miles at about 30mph, followed by about 22 miles at 65ish miles an hour.

Motorway run to my store = 37mpg
7min run to my training store = 24mpg

Plus my fuel gauge is completely cack, even after 10 litres is put in from empty the fuel gauge still thinks it's below the yellow light.

Wow, I didn't realise it had gone up by so much in so little time. I only recall a few pence rise since I have been buying fuel, mostly this year. I put Shell V-Power in my Alfa because the car is more responsive to the throttle than with supermarket crap. Probably we should bear the calorific value of the fuels and the varieties of additives in mind as variables in our little comparative.

I've achieved similar figures already, but driving 80km/h in my 2006 156 twinny. Over a 405 mile trip of mixed driving, I average 34mpg, which is exactly what I average on my way to work, 34km of non-stop traffic, 2nd, 3rd or 4th gear mostly.
