Lupo GTi MPG?


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I've currently got a Polo TDi (2007) due to having to do 120 miles a day commuting...

But that's now stopped and I only do 30 miles a day so I'm tempted to sell the Polo and buy a Lupo GTi which I've wanted for SO long, and insurance will finally allow at the same price as I'm paying on my Polo.

Just wondered if anyone can give me some good ideas of the MPG I should expect from the GTi?

Thanks in advance!

Depends on driving style. Most people average around 200 miles per tank or 300 miles on a motorway (at sensible speeds).

I can help with your search. Mines cheap so the money you save can be put towards fuel.

How do you get £40 in yours ?

Takes it down to fumes or do you get really cheap fuel by you ?

Best iv 'e done is about £36 and that was in the red.

There is a button in the filler neck that's lets the air out of the tank.

I've had 40l in my sport before

I thought they were only 30 ltr tanks or am I talking/thinking 5hit ?

Thanks though, i'll have look for that :thumbup:

It's more of a little lever than a button. On the right hand side of the filler, just inside the "mouth".

Some fuel nozzles have a ridge which you can catch it with, but I tend to fill, stop, push the "button" with the nozzle, fill, stop...

And on...

It cost around £40 till up. I get 240 miles out a tank. I believe it's 35 litre tank but I never knew about that button for the air tank. Fuel by me is about 1.29 a litre.
