I have just picked up a 2008 1.9tdi Skoda Octavia estate. These engines are renowned for their economy and longevity.
I will be tracking the fuel consumption on here, I have had an indicted 78mpg for a recent 15 mile trip, but will reserve judgement until I have tracked a couple of tanks full. Might be a while though as gauge is showing over 800 miles till empty.
P.S. It has 266k miles on it, but runs very sweetly and is wearing it's miles very well. I won't be the only driver, so it won't be hypermiled everywhere, but let's see how we get on.
That sounds like a very reliable one. My neighbor mentioned he used to have a Skoda Octavia he owned for 10 years. I'm coming over tomorrow to help him install the bumper and g2 axle & gear for his truck. I'll ask the mileage.
