A thread like this has been started before but obviously time has gone by so mileages would have increased.

I'll start the thread so that I can update the first post with the current 'winner'.

The only rules are that the car must still be on its original engine. Head work/injectors etc are fine but it must still be the original block and cylinder head.

Also, I know there would be no reason for anyone to lie but please can any claim be backed up by a photo of the speedo showing the mileage.

Current highest miler is:

Imola Yellow (TDI) at 555,555 (348,000 on original engine)

Current highest mileage on original engine

Weetank2 with 356k miles (TDI)

Do we have a recap of the overall mileage list & rankings? My AMF project car Cosmo is on ~285k and hopefully many more if I can resolve the disintegrated alternator pulley and EGR oil leak. Also have to swap the driver door to get rid of windowframe corrosion but the alternator is the concern at the moment.

I've got a complete window regulator here in Fife if you're needing one?

Thank you! I've got a complete silver door from A2 Steve here - just (!) need to swap it over and transfer the internal trim. Unfortunately Covid put paid to some of the mooted plans for a Scottish group workshop day this spring when I was hoping to avail myself of expertise and extra hands, but the alternator pulley eating itself terminally back in the darkest few weeks of January has trumped everything and desperately needs fixing now.

How are you getting 70mpg Trevor? Apart from the six speed of course, what tyres are you running and at what pressure? What cruising speed and driving techniques / style?

I got 79.5mpg to a tank, with hypermilling with 4 people and completely packed with luggage on a TDi 90

It can be done - my last 3 tanks have been 70+ mpg (https://www.spritmonitor.de/de/detailansicht/1109647.html). Biggest factor is how you drive (I use a light right foot and most of my driving is commuting on a route I know well, even though it is hilly with lots of junctions), then good maintenance (brakes free, tyres inflated (I'm on 32psi F/30psi R - more doesn't seem to help but makes ride harsh) and make sure the air filter has been changed!), light 15" wheels (7 spoke OE alloys or pepperpots), reduce any unnecessary weight (I've got the rear seats out at the moment) and I've also got a lower grill block and wheel spats to improve the aerodynamics a bit (see here: https://www.a2oc.net/community/index.php?threads/eco-alan.43243/page-2). On a long run at this time of year (summer diesel, warm dry weather) I think I could top 75mpg. Pop in a higher ratio geabox (e.g. JDD) and I expect 80mpg should be feasible..... I think it would be very hard to get a 1.4TDI to 3L economy levels, but the standard car can be improved in that direction.

Great to see all these high milers still going strong, don't think mine will reach that - just gone over 50k after 18 years.
