Well, either I own the most economical production diesel car in the world or my ScanGuage is off. I did a 291 mile trip and my average consumption was 0.8LHK. All that money VW spent on the 1 litre concept car - they could have just borrowed my car!

I'll do another fill up tomorrow and calculate using traditional methods. I will recalibrate at this stage too. My fuel gauge reads half a tank left (a full tank is 55 litres) so that's 25.5 litres used in 291 miles (468km). This is a very rough calculation though.

More later...
