400 miles without the light coming on is impressive, good work! Not much point buying the 2.0 diesel A1 really when the COD is that good.

The A1 is a second quicker to 60mph though ;)

I just got 48mpg on the 12 mile commute into work ( 122PS+DSG) ... mixed traffic but no hold ups , nice and sunny, very pleasant . Shame i've got to stay at work :(

I'll raise your 48mpg to 73mpg :)

Managed to get it the other week but not since. Although its usually in the mid 60's

Bigger tank though so you'd expect that, 55 litres IIRC.

I think the way the 122ps works is its perfect for consumption when doing lower speeds ie. 50-60mph but not so good on motorway at 70...ish. Works for me but I imagine some people would expect a car that gets 45-50 in the suburbs to do much better on a long run but it doesnt . As i say works for me though .

Not yet decided on the A1 I'm getting ….. off to see it again tomorrow (1.6Tdi, 2011 plate, 22,000 miles)
After reading these mpg figures I think I'm spoilt with my A2, fill it up for £38 and I get about 440 miles out of it 8-) 8-)

Mmm, wanting the same with the A1 :oops: :oops:

Dream on.....expect 50-60mpg from 1.6tdi. Depends on your driving and the journeys you do.
