Well am I glad I didn't waste my ££ on a TDi !
Mind you I only do about 6k a year. With mainly very short runs, not really getting to proper running temp.
But I am getting 30-33 round town and best ever cross country 44 so bearing in mind the price difference between the two fuels I'm doing just about as well as you 'Oily boys'.
Just done 6000 and in for it's birthday service on Monday.
I think your experience reflects traditional wisdom of a petrol for low miles and town driving. I do high miles and live in the country. I get 46 locally and 56 on long runs which more than negates the small percentage variation in fuel cost per litre (in my case). However I do like the low down torque shove the diesel gives - and I definayely don't drive like a nun 😀

Just to amuse yourself.....if you have the chance to drive a 1.4 or 2.0 TSi. I think you will be surprised. Though, having had plenty of diesels, I agree that derv poke is king

This thread got me a bit worried about MPG. Fortunately now that I’ve taken delivery of my 190 DSG I know I didn’t need to worry. First commute this morning with less than 25 miles on the odometer saw 43mpg. Less traffic on the way home saw economy up to 46mpg. 25 mile commute each way, on a mix of 40mph and 60mph A roads, with a bit of stop start traffic and junctions thrown in. Admittedly driving it gently as it’s not run in, but it would be difficult to drive it much harder on my commute without driving into the back of the car in front.

Hopefully figures will improve a bit more with some more miles.

On average I am getting between 45-50mpg, best so far 63mpg which amazed me to be honest.

Some pretty impressive mpg figures on this thread. I'm 920 miles in and averaging 35.3mpg. Best I had on a long motorway run from picking the car up was 39.8mpg.
My commute is 22 miles with a mixture of town, 50mph road works and 70mph dual carriageway. I've been experimenting with the modes to see what difference it makes. I've come to the conclusion that Eco is not what it's cracked up to be. Trying my hardest to be gentle accelerating, my Eco mode gives me around 33mpg and normal mode gives me around 35mpg. I decided to put it in sport mode, accelerate a bit quicker up to speed and manually put it in a higher gear when required. This yields 37-38mpg! The way I see it is there's no point putting up with the sluggish throttle response on Eco... Sport it is from now on.

I've had mine for just over a week, and the average is 33.3 on long term, short term, since refueled, etc. this is based on short 10 mile e/w commutes to work and back. Driving to Czech soon, will see what i can achieve then,,,,

7 months old and 3,500 miles on the clock. Long term mpg displayed as 43mpg. I have had as high as 50mpg displayed "Since Start" on an 86 mile mainly motorway trip.

There seems to be a wide range of outcomes reported here, there are no certainties it would seem, and the results presumably reflect the differing driving circumstances of the owners.

.... my current long term mileage is 42.3 mpg and on some long runs down to Coventry and back it has happily cleared 46 mpg.
Agreed .. your figures are really quite good compared to mine. After 6k miles my long term consumption is just 33.4 mpg and I have to drive really sedately to squeeze 40 mpg out on a long run, ( and that's with two less seats and no spare wheel ! )
Happy to say that after another 10k miles of wear, I am now getting closer to 45mpg on my long motorway runs.
