i finally did it
sorry for a wasteful thread but im just way to excited not to let the TCL know..
average MPG 49.3 - hand calculation (MFI said 49.7MPG)
Range alone never impresses me. How big is the tank in the tdi? 15 gallons? Mrs McBanagons Civic could go 500 miles with a 15 gallon tank.
49mpg is the number that impresses me, and I'm impressed.

Granted my tank is larger, but in my B4 Passat wagon TDI, I've had TWO 1250 mile tanks, that's just a hair over 2,000 KM's on one tank of fuel. My average was 52 mpg both times. I just replaced my injection pump seals, so I'll be interested to see if those numbers go up.
I routinely get 1200kms out of a tank on my MkIII TDI.

Best i did on my 15.9 gallons with ventectomy was 813 miles right after i bought the car . .It was a boring ride for 2 weeks for sure of doing the speed limit granny driving in the right lane . So now i enjoy my constant 700 miles on 15.8+/- gallons of hooning fun . . There are several "mile club" threads on tdiclub.com 700,800 and 900 miles on a tank. . .But again , congrats. .

wow a day later and its still on page #1..... success
those who like this,,,, thank you
but you dont really get 900 unless you did it on your first tank. its very easily doable but you gotta get over 900 mile to claim you can.. i've had 900 range show up on my GOLF after driving 60 miles (it was from loveland pass down to denver, but unless i actually drive the distance that range number tends to jump around a bit) but i hope you get it.
John and Helen Taylor got 1626 miles on one tank of their 2012 Passat TDI.
I think gallons per year is a better number to work on.
The calculated MPG and distance to empty tends to be really close on the diesels. I haven't had a tank off by more than 1 mpg.
btw after few fill ups you'll learn that the last RANGE number once you get down to below 1/4 tank will drop alot faster then it does during first 3/4
exampe: on this 700 mile tank the last day i was driving to work, when my FUEL wanring went on at 50 mile RANGE, 3 miles later when i pulled in to work it said 35 MILES,
cmmn man i know you can do this, and come back and post a picture

My bike gets 49-50mpg on the highway.
"The Sebring is an extraordinary car. Ugly to behold and hateful to drive, it is not cheap, elegant, comfortable, practical, prestigious, clever, economical, luxurious, well designed, well thought out or, if the rental car I drove in America this year is anything to go by, especially well made either." - Jeremy Clarkson
