Touareg TDI MPG

I am a new owner of a touareg TDI with 8500 miles.
My Real (Calculated) MPG is around 23.5

My daily commute 122 miles driving Freeway at 70mph
I was expecting better mph

What are other members experiences?

I can get around 575 to 600 per tank

I will assume this is a V6 TDI and you don't have many miles on it yet. It will get better the more it gets broken in. Wait till after 10K and it should pick up more and just get better with age.

600 miles per tank isn't bad prior to break-in. At the same speed I was able to get about 680 miles per tank. I would say that's quite good for a 4X4 SUV (as long as we're talking about the V6 TDI). (Ref: 2010 6 speed 3.0, the new 2011 8 speed will get better mileage)

Yeah, I forgot to mention that as well. I don't even bother calculating mileage in the winter because the fuel additive makes it worse. Wait till summer to see what it really does as well as wait for it to break in a little.

sounds decent for a 2009 or 2010 6 speed.

TDI MPGs

Any thoughts or guesses on what the TDI Tregs could get if they had the option of not being all time 4WD?

Then us 2011 owners really would be red headed step-children. The scorn our vehicles get from not having air suspension and 4XMotion is all we can bear.

LOL...

on 2wd, I doubt you'd get much better than what the '11's are getting..is 30MPG not enough for a >5000# SUV? If you need more, Just buy a JSW with 4 cyl TDI and front wheel drive and enjoy 50mpg.

there is talk about the touareg getting a 2.0 TDI with 2wd, the 4motion only drops the mpg by about 2-3 mpg. a 2.0 tdi engine would be much better in fuel economy but imho would be underpowered in such a big vehicle
