Fuel Consumption

I’ve been keeping track of the fuel consumption in my VW Transporter Syncro over the last 5 months and in that time I’ve covered 6217 miles and used 758 litres of fuel (167 Gallons). I’ve also had the roof box fitted during the whole time.
Please see the table below.

Imperial MPG US MPG

Litres Per 100 KM

Average Consumption 37.29 31.05 7.58
Worst Consumption 32.85 27.36 8.60
Best Consumption 41.68 34.71 6.78


  • Hi there, what an amazing blog you've put together. We're planning to convert either a T5 or a T4 pannel van into a camper. I was wondering if you could give me some advice? which engine is better? anything i should look for etc

  • if you want good fuel consumption and not too much power a 2.4D is fine !

    i run mine on WVO so it only cost £24 to fill up too.

  • Hi, possibly the wrong section but can any one advise re the rear spring fitment for my T4 2.4D syncro SWB? Will any heavy duty spring from a SWB fit?

  • That's good mpg for a 4 wheel drive,
    I have a 2.5 88bhp and currently average 40mpg, for the convenience of having 4 wheel drive I'd settle for what your getting.

    Great blog by the way.
