My long term average is currently 41 mpg. It's worth pointing out that I only have 1,200 miles on the clock, which may also go some way to describe the difference between the 1.5 TSI Golf and T-Roc consumption figures. I'm guessing the previous Golfs had a lot more miles on them, hence looser engines. Also, there's the additional weight and no doubt slightly less slippery drag coefficient of the T-Roc over the Golf.

Similar experience to other posts. Improved fuel economy as engine runs in. Tyre pressures important as part of efficiency. Regarding WLTP, my July 2018 was pre WLTP so not sure what additional tweaks were made on September the 1st and onwards cars but I regularly get 48 mpg on 140 mile mixed trips of motorway /A roads/ B roads from the Midlands to the south coast. Around town between 30 mpg to 42 mpg based on distance and whether engine has warmed up. I always to tank to tank calculations on fill up and I am happy with the returns I get.

Surprised today on my routine commute, as my MPG over the 10 mile route averaging 27 mph (mixture of A roads and motorway) was 46.2. This is a notable increase - typically 40 MPG. Wondering whether the milder conditions have caused this or maybe things are "loosening up" after 3000 miles or so. Anyway I hope this will continue. Happy with this performance from my 1.5 TSI DSG

Forgot to post on here after filling up, but I worked out it did 38.5 mpg on its first full tank.

Will keep a track of it for the next few tankfuls, though my low annual mileage means you might be waiting a while in between fill ups :D

Hi all, just done a fuel economy check based on 3 fill ups from new and 956 miles, doing all local short run, longest being about 14miles. It's working out at 32miles to the gallon, which is exactly what it says in the book, so all in all can,t complain,

While my T-Roc was in having the camera changed I had a 2019 Polo 1.0 courtesy car with 70 miles on the clock. I was blown away with the economy. All be it that most of my 20 mile commute is in a 50mph average speed limit.

You must have had a tail wind !

I had a Polo 1.0 courtesy car a few weeks ago, with around 600 miles on the clock, so if anything slightly more run-in. I drove it for about 70-80 miles and it didn't give anything like that mpg. I put about £15 of petrol in when I got it and struggled to get it back without having to add more. Admittedly, most of the distance was at 50-60 mph, but I'd be lucky if I got half that figure.

Ha..ha.. I too had put £15 worth of fuel in and was returning the car, so there may have been some lorry slip streaming too ;)
Not that I condone that sort of behaviour of course :roll:
Still very respectable though. I wonder if it being a 2019 model made a difference?

Engine’s obviously loosening up nicely now. Got this on the way home.

Mines averaging around 45mpg most i have got was 52mpg with the 1.5tsi engine. The worse figures i had were when it was getting serviced 32mpg shows the mechanics like to put ther foot down when on a test run.But i dont know if this is coincidence but the 2 cylinder mode seems to come on more now the cold weather as gone.
