Real world fuel efficiency of the Volkswagen Taigun 1.0L TSI AT

With the driving mix split equally between city and highways, there seems to be a significant dip in mileage even with XP95.

BHPian asmr recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

Hey Team BHPians and esp. fellow Taigun owners,

Posting a quick update here on the eve of crossing 2500Kms in my Taigun.

I have been experimenting (if you can call it that) with multiple fuels in different driving conditions.

Here's the table I have built myself in Excel. I do use Fuelio, but I prefer to my own data consolidation and analysis. Let me know your thoughts on what you infer from the data here.

Here are my thoughts:

  • The mileage during the initial 500Kms (100% city driving) is as expected on the lower side, I guess.
  • Between December 2021 and March 2022, I had used mostly XP95 but the driving was also more on highways.
  • With the driving mix split equally between city and highways, there seems to be a significant dip in mileage even with XP95. And that too with close to sedate driving.
  • It has been only a couple of days & about 100Kms since I filled the tank with HP Power (the local IOCL pump was out of stock on XP95 and I thought I might try this instead) and but I am already seeing a 1.5-2Kmpl dip in the average mileage shown on the car's instrument cluster. The engine also feels sluggish and a bit knocky. Should I consider Proctane or STP addition and see how the numbers turn out?

I have also successfully installed a DDPAI Z40 dashcam (front only, with a Strontium Nitro A1 128GB Micro SDXC Memory Card) myself in the Taigun without hard-wiring and it has been performing wonderfully. Need to spend time to photo-document that experience here in this thread as well as share some clippings (I just put 1 clip on YouTube just this evening, as my first ever YT video!).

Cheers,

ASMR
