Skoda Octavia DSG Transmission.

Hello,

I also have a Skoda Octavia automatic TDI. Year 2009, just purchased.

Haven´t use the first tank yet. It seems it will take a time, unless I travel far. Fuel consumption is very low, and you can see it in real time, so you can adjust yr driving to keep it low.

It is the first diesel car I see with this feature.

DSG AT transmission is a concern: it is smooth but seem to be unserviceable at home. Any experience with this?

Hello,

You are right, skoda octavia has real consumption information (fuel yield, or mpguino)) as all the vw-audi group cars.

After quite 10.000km using a grid block
http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthrea...ock-12257.html

My turbodiesel 1.9cm3 passed from 5,5 l/100km to 5,2 l/100km, with no heating problems in spanish hot summer.

Sorry, I can't help you with DGS AT transmission, mine is 5 gear manual.

Salut
CB

Grill block for Skoda Octavia diesel

I saw yr plastic grill block. And read the yield increment of using it.

What do you think is the reason for that improvement? Won´t it damage the engine?

Tks in advance for yr explanation.

After 10.000km, I don't notice any engine problem like too much hot and no advice that the electro-fan started to refrigerate the engine. And Spanish summers are 25 to 35ºC.
I supose there are two reasons:
1- The engine reach sooner his normal temperature that makes the injection map change to 'normal' program soon too. Then lower consumption, because with cold engine the injection program use more fuel.
2- Aerodynamics force is proportional to speed^3

Aero mod to Skoda Octavia

Hello Covarxi,

Tks for yr answer. What I understood is:

1. There is a gain due to reaching work ideal temp faster.
Comment: This is very important if when you use the car in the city with short trips, and in the road with cold trips.

2. There is a gain due to better aerodynamics, as the avoid air penetration and turbulence.

3. Ther isn´t overheating of the engine.
Comment: for temps lower than 25 grades Centigrades we may say for sure.
25 degrees is the maximum here.

Anyway, in my first travel I will use the car for some km with the grill cover and some without it, to compare. Will put it to work say at 100km/h cruise controlled. Then at 70km/h for comparison. Will write down fuel yield results. Here we measure it in km/lt.
Of course will keep an eye on the temp.

Will share results here.

Saludos,

OLdBeaver

I saw some aero mods people made covering the belly of the car, all the car under.
When I went to see my Skoda for doing that too, I got a great surprise to see that this is already done in the Skoda from factory.
Great !

Hello Covarxi,

Tudo bem! Eu também falo Portugués.

I already copied yr grill cover, however make it from a different kind of plastic. It is working well so far. Have to see effects in a long trip, maybe tomorrow.

I will tell the Forum about.

Skoda Octavia II - front grille winter cover : Skoda Tuning = superskoda.com

Also for fabia and roomster.

Moito obrigado Mario_Marques...and very good wine in Oporto!!
