106 GTi MPG

Using too much fuel?

I’ve suspected for a while I’m not getting the MPG I should be getting in the 106. I’m not looking for diesel economy, but I think 35mpg should be achievable on a run. As any owner will tell you the 106 fuel gauge is shockingly inaccurate, so I’ve written a little MPG Calculator tool to find out my actual mpg.

Working it out I seem to be getting approximately 270 miles to 45 litres which is ~27mpg. I have an idea what might be causing this figure to be a bit lower than it should, namely binding rear brakes which could easily be causing drag and causing poor fuel consumption figures.
