Some of it's diesel, I think only one fill up though! Shocked because I thought I spent about ?100 a month. It's not the end of the month yet either!

Given, there is a couple of bottles of coke in there somewhere, but dayum!

Random amounts as I tend to fill up as I go past if it's under half way, as from there, it does drop pretty quickly, or seems to. I have about 100 miles left.

Do about 1300 miles a month. Probably done 1500 this month though.

i live within 5 min walk to work, so don't have to commute which saves ???

Also i live close to the Irish Border and fill up down there. Was down last night and diesel was a euro a litre! Best i have ever seen it and with there being a good exchange rate i was even better off! Think i was getting it at 67/68 a litre!

Couldn't complain about that!

Noel, i did the same with the Golf, but didn't really fancy doing it with the Bora as i always think the diesel is not as good, where do you go? We usually go to Moan's garage outside Keady, the one on the where you have to drive up a small incline

?280 - ?300 a month in the Kangoo, thank god the company picks up the tab..... [:D]

Was around ?120 a month with the MKV GTI as Emma uses the car for work in the week and i play out at the weekends..

Now it's no more than ?60 a month with the A3 and we do more miles now due in part to the A3's better economy and cutting down on the van usage a little

When I had my R I used to fill up every other day - ?50 of optimax a time. Fortunately I used to work abroad for half the year. Still managed to put ?5800 on my fuel card that I had.

Now with my A3 I put about ?55-60 a week in fuel in it.

i have heard about some dodgy places in ROI!!! Just stick to reputable stations! I would normally go into dundalk, no real preference to be honest, im allways in newry every other weekend getting bits and pieces so its only a 10 min drive at most!

Nice to see a semi local person on here lol

love your motor! looks well!

Thats a lot..well you have got an R!

I probably spend about a tenner a week, but thats only because i only drive it lectures and small journeys which isnt very often [:)]

But in all seriousness, petrol mk4s are soo thirsty...wouldnt mind if mine had some poke but it doesnt of course, so i get the worst of both worlds[:(]

?150/200 a month I would guess in the TDI.

Sometimes double that, depends where im going, ive spent over ?100 in Diesel in a weekend messing around all over the UK recently though.

Used to be ?100 a week in the SEAT, but cutting back on driving has seen that fall to ?50 a lot of weeks. Company pay for fuel so I pay 75% of 40% of the weekly amount (in tax) which is around ?15.
