MY 2000 1.9td I never get less than 550 miles, my best was 640 in France. But usually get just shy of 600, but I do drive like a grand dad.I:

my 2001 1.9TD always did 512 miles from full tank to warning light coming on. It's done this ever since I bought it always 512 miles +/- 0.6 of a mile. Then I did various tuning mods and expected about 500 miles to a tank, however to my delight now I've fitted the twin oval stainess exhaust system from PP tuning the first full tank got me 530 miles and still no warning light!!
I'm off to France in it over Xmas so it will be interesting to see how many miles I get.

used to get about 500 out of a tank when i had my 1.9td engine, regularly see 650-700 out of a tank now i have a 1.9tdi engine,

200 miles extra out of every tank makes a massive difference, especially with fuel as expensive as it now is. and its running twice the power of my old engine! win win!
