1.5 TSI DSG
300-320 miles
Pathetic

averaging 30-32mpg regardless
Even on a long trip
That's quite low, mine is a 2L 190 dsg, and i wasn't too impressed by the 375 miles i got.
Btw most of the mileage i did was with 2 adults and two over 7yr olds.

Pushing 600 miles on my 2.0TDI 150PS DSG estate, not driving like Miss Daisy, but at a sensible and legal speed. Signficantly better than the 1.6TDI manual (remapped to 140PS) that I had before. Adblue range never seems to change.

Thats really impressive, maybe the air in your country is better than UK lol
I'm older and drive like a tart sometimes... but generally: by looking far ahead so you can react in time and not pounding the pedal all the time will get you this far

As a rule I don't fill to the brim nor let it run very low, but the one tank record for my 1.5TSi 150 EVO
Golf wagon, (DADA) stands at 506 miles when on holiday last year, 4-up and with a lot of luggage.
Computer stated around 15 miles of range left, (using 97 octane Sainsbury petrol, Stage 1 remap)

I don't think the MPG display is accurate on mine, when I'm purely driving to/from work my MPG is 43 and I get exactly 500 miles out of a tank, actual conversion puts it around 45MPG. If I'm doing a longer journey it can be 500-550 with the right driving.
The missus' 2.0TDI did 650 miles last year on a tank, all motorway with ACC. Dover to Biddinghuizen and back on one tank felt good considering the fuel prices over there
