How economical is the petrol Volkswagen Passat?

Hi, could anyone tell me where to get the fuel consumption for the 1.4 TSI petrol engine as used in the 2008 Volkswagen Passat? I'm thinking of that car for low tax - doing about 19,000 miles per annum but that will fall to 6,000 per annum next year.

Thanks, Rtb, Galway.

Which of these MPVs will give the best economy?

Hi, I asked you a question before, I was planning to buy a Nissan Qashqai, and just double checked the mpg with you. I'm so glad I did, just over 40mpg is a little low for my budget. So now I am looking at the following cars, and am hoping you could give me an idea again of the economy I can expect to get:

Citroen C4 Picasso 2007 1.6 HDi

Citroen Xsara Picasso 2008 1.6 HDi

Ford C-Max 2008 1.6 diesel

Renault Scenic 2008 1.5 diesel

Thanks in advance!

Should I swap my petrol Golf for a Passat?

Would I save much money, fuel wise, by swapping my 2003 petrol Volkswagen Golf 1.6 (which averages 35mpg) for a 2007 Volkswagen Passat 1.6 FSI? Or would the saving be negligable?
