Golf GTI Edition 30 MPG : whats possible...

1st pic is a normal fill up = 26 MPG / 280 miles
2nd pic is recent motorway trip = 36.5 MPG / 425 miles !

The difference?

Well the 1st pic is 'normal' mixed usage and represents a day to day mpg figure

The 2nd is going up and down the motorway at 70 mph , with a very light foot!
Nearly managed to travel up to Scotland and back on one tank of fuel.

Just shows you want the Golf 'could' do , but alas it was far too painful keeping it and 70 and not using the horses coming down slip roads lol

Edition 30 : Dyno plot : 255 @ flywheel / 230 @ wheels

Day organised by kae on at Awesome in Irlam near Manchester.

Reckoned it would be rude not to see how the Edition 30 went , plus it had the added advantage of indicating whether or not my concerns over the clutch gearbox were valid.
Short story is everything seems to be just fine :-)
Another Edition 30 ran exactly the same figures (manual + carbonio intake)
Remapped ED30's were at 305 flywheel !
