As a VW Golf fan, I have had two new ones in the last seven years I recon that Volkswagen will be the first company to get a car to do 100 MPG

The latest VW Golf 1.6 TDI BlueMotion claims 88.3 MPG (Volkswagen UK website) but that is not realistic for normal road use.

The most I have had on a trip in my VW Golf 1.6 TDI BlueMotion is 72.2 MPG average recorded on a good clear run from Berkshire to Wiltshire on the A303 largely going a reasonable speed but being gentle with the acceleration etc.

I regularly get 64 to 68 MPG average on trips.

This is about a 25% improvement on my previous VW Golf 1.6 TDI which was not a BlueMotion model.

Zero road tax (last Golf was £30 pa) and the BlueMotion is actally quite a bit more nippy than the previous Golf and better performance on top!

Even if VW (or any other manufacturer for that matter) claims 100 MPG in the near future I think we need to be talking what is achieved on normal roads with normal use.

But I think that it will be the Golf especially if VW gave the next version of the Golf 1.6 TDI BlueMotion dual battery power (such as in the Nissan Prius) that could well stretch the achievable MPG to over 100 MPG average.

That would be great for the environment, my wallet and I would certainly buy one!

COME ON VW GOLF BE THE FIRST 100MPG plus car in the UK! Pleaseeeeeee lol
