This was also the first long trip that I left home with a little over half tank of fuel, but I made it home in the same tank! Not once did I have to drive extremely gently to achieve this mileage, and not once did I hesitate to have fun and push this car hard.
BHPians AJ18, fluidicjoy, arshad_98, deepfusion, TSI47, Endless…., and sudeep.pandya recently shared this with other enthusiasts.
AJ18 shared his initial experience with his Reflex Silver 1.0L TSI MT during the run-in period:
Fuel efficiency in the city until now has been an average of 9 kmpl. This is with moderate traffic. On the highway, I was getting an average of 12 kmpl.
fluidicjoy shared an update when his Highline+ Automatic reached 1,700 km:
I have been really happy with the Fuel Efficiency, considering how quick this car is. 10.8km/l on a consistent basis on city drives in Pune’s average traffic is really good considering the 1.2L i10 Auto barely manages 8-9km/l. On highways though, the 09G’s 5th and 6th gears ensure a healthy double digit mileage which doesn’t dip too much even if you push this drivetrain hard. On my trips to Ahmednagar, could manage a healthy 15-16km/l which is really good considering this is a Turbo charged petrol engine.
He also shared an update when the car reached 3,000 km:
I truly loved the performance of the TSI Engine on this trip, both to and fro, and the car returned a healthy mileage of near 14km/l on my 8 hour 12 minute drive. This was also the first long trip that I left home with a little over half tank of fuel, but I made it home in the same tank! Not once did I have to drive extremely gently to achieve this mileage, and not once did I hesitate to have fun and push this car hard.
arshad_98 reported the mileage his Highline+ MT gave during the first 32 days and 990 km of ownership:
During this drive, the car gave a mileage of 17.7 kmpl as per the odo, but when we calculated it manually, it was around 16.3 kmpl. The SA had already told us that there would be a slight variation in the MID reading and the original figures.
deepfusion reported this after a 83 km round trip:
Wow, this is plain amazing. 26.3 kmpl for an 83 kms round trip to VW west Delhi.
TSI47 shares the figures his 1.0L TSI MT returned:
If anyone is wondering how much mileage the Polo TSI can give in the city with some sedate driving (occasionally ) below image might help:
But I have noticed that even if it is pushed a lot, it doesn’t drop below 10.5-11 kmpl.
After a 900 km road trip over 2 days, Endless…. had this to report:
Almost forgot about touching upon the mileage figures that some of us here may be interested in. Short story, 12.7 kmpl for day 1, 550 kms. Long story, I drove with a lead foot for close to 200 kms. Average dropped to 10 kmpl. The next 2 legs were done sedately, maintaining respectable highway speeds and hence the incremental increase in mileage. I’ve never had to refuel doing this route in the past but this time, I did stop once for fuel. Range is about 450 kms on a full tank with a mix of spirited and sedate driving. I am sure another 50 to 80 kms can be wrung out of this motor, easily.
The next days driving, post inspection/service at VW, avg mileage has improved. Got 14 kmpl. This has a lot to do with me settling down from the initial euphoria rather than any tweaks at the service center. They did however mention that existing customers get over 16 kmpl on highway runs. I believe them. It’s possible, if you have un-imaginable amounts of will power to resist them prancing ponies under the hood.
