    Hi I own a golf mk 6 1.6 tdi bluemotion DSG 7 speed for nearly 3 years now is been the perfect car till last year August when I had it serviced , since then the fuel consumption started to grow as it was doing 50+ mpg and now is doing 35mpg average . Can anybody please advise me what can I do to return it to 50+ mpg ? It has full vw service history and 84k miles on the clock . Driving nice and slow no hills or bad traffic doing about 24 miles a day to work and back .
    Thank you
    Andy

I usually fill up at shell or esso and every now and then fill up with premium diesel . last service had oil (quantum 3 long life ) and oil filter bosch , air filter bosch fuel filter man and liquid molly diesel purge used when replaced the filter, had gearbox oil replaced as recommended by vw at 80k , coolant replaced , brake fluid replaced , car is not sowing any errors or lights on dash and drives like new is just very thirsty . ANY ADVICE WELCOMED . Thank you

    Something desn't sound right. Get it scanned for codes, because you don't always get warning lights. Did it have the emissions 'fix'?

    no emissions fix I refuse it as It was working fine and have read about people complaining of things going wrong after having the 'fix' . I had the diagnostics at a local garage (vw specialists ) and no errors . they sad that everything is fine with the car and never seen a golf with such poor mpg (they advice me to fill up with shell v-power and go on a longer trip with it in sport mode , done that 120 miles trip at 70-80 mi/h no change in mpg ) I also have a seat toledo with same engine and is doing 48-50 mpg on same trip (been using the seat lately as is more economical) with golf I am doing 350 miles per tank same tank on toledo gets me 550-600 miles

    The dsg gearbox in drive sometimes changes gears at very low rpm if accelerating nice and slow at 35 miles/h is changing in 6th gear and it is at 1000rpm witch I think is to low as all car is vibrating . If I floor it is changing gears at 4000rpm . is there any chance that the dsg gear selector module is not working properly anymore ? gearbox has been serviced last year since then is doing poor mpg

    I would place good money on them having done the recall and not telling you.
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Hi
    I've check on the vw website if its sowing as it had the fix and its saying the service was not done and to contact them to book it in for the ''fix" . should I book it in for the emission service or not ?

    If you have read back on this site or others you will see that having the emissions recall carried out is a disastrous idea.
