Hi,

What is your average fuel consumption/mileage in the city? (regular traffic jams etc.).

Mine mine shows ~17 liters per 100km and I'm not sure if this is OK or not.

What are your averages in the city?

These are about the most accurate numbers you'll find since they're averaged over multiple trips & owners:

Touaregs tracked on fuelly.com
Just looked at it and then drilled into the 2014's. FASTTDI was right above me at 26.3 mpg. Ugh. I'm averaging 20.8. But I do a LOT of short trips and around town stuff.

I can say that the sweet spot is about 70-75 mph. I've noticed that fuel mileage drops quite a bit above 80mph. But I'll run ~28mpg indicated with the cruise set at 77.

So far - LOVING my TDI! It just needs it's legs stretched a little more frequently.....

Seems really, really low. I average 21-24 mpg in the city and a solid 30 mpg on the interstate.17 l/100 km is close to 14 mpg, right?
Yes 17 liters is 14mpg.
So I should get 21-24mpg but mine mileage is not even close to that in the city :(

I have a broken rear NOx sensor. Not sure how it impacts yet my mileage but definitely I need to change it asap to eliminate one of the possible causes.

For me, right around 22MPG in city.

Just returned from a trip (Louisville to Hilton Head, SC), I averaged 27.2MPG. Drove 615 miles, 100 miles on range left, averaged 69.5MPH and was loaded with luggage.

I get 14 l/100km pulling my 18' boat. You definitely have something wrong.

2013 TDI Exec according to MFI 26.1 mpg over the last 9,000 miles which is probably 50/50 highway/city. Highway only cuising in the low 70s mph typically see 31+ mpg.

This is very similar to my results from 30 kms at delivery to 7500 km now.
