Just did usual 70 mile round trip.
Noted consumption on return leg while keeping to speed limit.
50 for a long portion, 70 the rest, got 54mpg.

Fair play, Not bad at all!

Hello,

1.Just return from a 75 Km highway drive with my polo GTI 2019 at constant speed of 96 KPH (60 MPH).
Got 19 KM per Liter (53 MPG).
2. On the same road but driving at 110 KPH ( 68 MPH) I got 16 KPL ( 45MPG ).

Not bad at all.

That kind of corresponds with what I've had for 50+ mile journeys. When maintaining 75-80mph on the motorway, I see about 46mpg and when maintaining 65-70mph, it's more like 53mpg.
