23mpg on a long run at 60mph......

......towing my trailer. Ouch.

Took my Polo track car on my trailer to a rolling road and used half of tank of fuel to do 140 miles - the DIS read 22.8mpg.

On the plus side my Polo produced 205bhp at the flywheel and 158bhp at the wheels - not bad for a 1.3 litre 8 valve designed in the 80's!

Anyone else had worse mpg figures (exc track days!!)?

used to get 29mpg towing a 1500kg caravan with my 335d fully loaded & 4 passengers.

Still amazed now how it would hapily go along at just 1300/1400 revs in top gear up quite an incline on the motorway at 50-55mph.

Here are a few pics of the Polo - it's a genuine G40 which there are only about 150 left in the uk now.

This is at Santa pod fitted with drag slicks - 13.5 second 1/4 mile time.

Yeah the standard G lader supercharger was too unreliable and was only capable of 14psi of boost whereas now I am running 23psi of boost.

Nice car.

DXB - You must have hammered that D everywhere

Averaged 9.2MPG over 23 miles to work the other day due to the closure of the A2. Generally nowhere near that bad though.

Jeez - you did well to avoid that Civic that span at Lodge! (2:05) great reactions - then straight back on it with the M3!
