2011 Scirocco 170

Postby andirob » Tue Apr 06, 2021 2:29 pm

Hi, Im new to this forum having just bought a 2011 Scirocco 2.0 TDI 170. Lovely car and Ive figured out how most things work except the sat nav thinks Im in Germany and I don't know how to change it to the UK. It find my destination but won't change the start country. Does anyone know if this is easily fixable. Also when I bought the car I put £50 diesel in and having previously had a Gold 2.0 TDI 110 I thought the mpg would be similar. The Golf got me at least 45mpg on short journeys. I haven't used all the diesel yet but its looking like Im getting low 30's to the gallon and that's being driven carefully. Does anyone know what I should realistically expect. Many thanks.

Can't help with the sat nav but I have a 170 TDI and average mid 40s aroind town and mid 50s on a run.

Edit: The links below sounds like a similar issue with the sat nav

Re: 2011 Scirocco 170 fuel consumption

Hi Andirob,

My 2010 TDi 170 usually returns an indicated 50-55 mpg (60mpg on a really good day!). There are a wealth of threads here between this Multi-Function Display reading and "real world" figures. I have listed out all the fuel I have bought and compared a calculated real-world mpg versus this car-generated figure and I'd say the real world consumption is around 48-55 mpg when the MFD displayed 50-60 mpg.

You might want to check if your engine software had been updated by VW after their Emissions Scandal publicity. I have refused to get mine altered because of the anecdotal evidence from drivers. Apparently the software update can impact on the emissions.

Fingers crossed !

I should add that the figures quoted in my post are also with a car without the "emissions update" as I too refused to get it done.
