@ VEA

The thing is, I personally don't care about the FE. If I currently spend Rs 5000 a month on petrol and can afford to spend Rs 2000 more, who cares? I have more fun driving my car. The thing is, it is important to the rest of my family, therefore I had to ask. But it turns out they can live with an overall of 10 kpl or thereabouts.

hey if you are buying a petrol sedan! then you should be ready to pay 5k per month! that i think that's kinda obvious!, don't tell me you buy 1.8tsi and you don't drive fast and aggressively that's never gonna happen! so you might as well prepare yourself for the fuel bills!, and beleive me its not the fuel which will be your primary cost in the long run! it will be service and repairs and depriciation!

In my vRS i get around 7-8(rarely 9) kmpl in city if i drive below 2K rpm and around 10-11 kmpl on highways if the average speed is around 90-100 kph and extensive use of cruise control. In city if driven aggressivley i've never got above 6-7 kmpl and around 9-10 kmpl on highways. These are honest figures and if you look at the TSI motor you can add +1 to all these figures as far as the fuel efficiency is concerned.

Exactly ashish , you said it . thats what i get . highway avg is @10 for me as i dont ues cruse control . most of the times i have a blast and it returns me 7-8 kmph.
highway avgs are always better at 100-110 kmph as turbo boost is on at those speeds. nice say !

I applaud you for your honesty.
For some people their FE is like a personal quality. The figures are always "inflated".

I suppose if one is looking for performance upgrade there are many better options. i.e. If one is willing to do something like remap. With companies like custom code, UK, revo tecnik, one can expect 220hp and 380nm of torque with just stage 1. One can get even turbo and other upgrade options.

I concur about city mileage, however in my case it goes to around 12-13. I have maanged to get 9 in town but it all ependent on whether traffic flows as opposed to stop start.
