What sort of MPG can I expect from the 199 4 Motion DSG variant

Any one ?
199 4motion DSG, new at Chrismas 18: 13500 miles so far, 7000 of them fully loaded with bikes on the back including 3500 in Norway. First 3000 commuting 25 miles a day. 31.4mpg overall so far. It is driven conservatively. Best tank has been 42 (light load no bikes, Derbyshire to south coast return), worst 26 - commuting in heavy traffic.

150 manual 4motion Ocean. 6.5k over the last 14 months = 35.5mpg. A mixture of some long trips but mostly A+B roads round the Lakes and short ~10 miles commuting.

With a 204 4Motion on 235/55 all season tyres, bikes on the back and roof box I got about 30mpg average from UK to Sweden and back recently, and due to time constraints the cruise was set at just over 130kmh, alternating with quite a few roadworks.
Wasn’t as good as I had hoped but I didn’t consider was too bad overall. Have seen well over 45mpg average on the MFD on very gentle runs in the past when partially loaded and nothing on top or back.

Why people keep quoting Memory 1 mpg figures I just don't understand. Unless you are comparing the same journey each time then they are completely meaningless

There are two memory 1 figures, instantaneous and trip. One is a joke the other is interesting.
My long term memory 2 is currently 45 mpg, 215 tyres and lots of smart motorway and continental road works. Surprisingly cheap motoring for fully loaded Ocean. Filling up tomorrow in Luxembourg + €1.11ltr onroute to Croatia.

From the filling station in pas de la casa in Andorra and down towards Spain you can achieve higher figures than this. Going up into Andorra from the French side and it’s about 18 mpg. Swings and roundabouts.......At the moment in the middle of France we have 38.4 mpg average. Year on year this figure stays about the same....

My overall consumtion is 7,69 liter/100km.
I have not recorded from the beginning, but only from about 80 000 km, now up to 141000.
Best was 6,59 liter/100km
Worst: 9,72.

Factory states about 7,7 liter/100 km, so yes, factory numbers are achievable.
I just don't drive 130km/h on journeys in France. That might help.
Managed to see this one time:
Refueled 400 km ago, coming at roadworks with a speed limit of 70 km/h. After 5 minutes of driving 70 km/h, the computer told me I could go on for another 1100 km like this. Not bad for an old diesel engine?

Now at Lake Caspe after seeing the Spanish Moto GP. Now averaging 37mpg. Can’t be any more gentle on the accelerator so I think that’s about it. How anybody gets Figures into the 40s is definitely not going to happen to us. It’s stayed like this for the past 4 years, considering the weight we are quite happy.

Tyres and tyre pressure seem to make a huge difference to average MPG.
