    Hi Guys im new to this forum.
    I have a 2011 1.6 tdi and have had it from new. i have been very happy with the vehicle until recently my fuel economy seems to be very high. I travel now 110km highway at 120km/h to 130km/h with no stopping and starting and the route is very flat with very little traffic. I have been getting 7.2l/100km (32mpg) average consumption. I reset my trip when im on the highway so the bit of stop starting from my house to the highway has now affect.

    What are the other polo tdi's out there getting?

    Thanks Dane

    That does seem poor but it could be the tires, road conditions, air pressure in the tires, sticking brake, loading of the car.

    I don't know the L/Km rating of the polo but it should be close to the listed specs.
