What do you usually get out of a full tank from a golf 1.8T ?. I seem to get around 210 miles on average. My record is 235miles !

210 is very low im guessing you have a heavey foot :D

Also how much in current petrol prices are you guys paying to fill a whole tank?

300 to 350 per tank !!!!!!!! Jesus .
I know i've got a really heavy right foot but thats madness getting that many miles. I think i need to try and drive normally for a full tank and see what i can get. I keep the car serviced so it must be my driving.

Yep 300 - 350 to a tank and im no slouch [:)] I can't see your foot being that heavy? surely? how about giving it a try taking it easy, if things don't improve like you've said, getting it checked out wouldn't be a bad idea.

yup, regularly see around 330-350.  Upto 420 on the m-way - but thats proper granny driving.  Normally hit 350-360 miles for a ?48 tank (50 litres)

210 miles from 55 litres (approx tank capacity) that's around 17.5 mpg, your car must be ****ed unless you're on a permanent track day ! Unless I'm stuck in city traffic all day I very rarely get less than 300 from a tank.

p.s. all the macho bs in this thread about having a heavy right foot is [|-)]
