Real world fuel efficiency of the Skoda Octavia vRS 230
A fuel economy of 16.6 kmpl on a 2.0 litre turbo petrol with 230 bhp is pretty amazing. I did drive with a light foot but I cant say I was too slow. I tried to maintain my speeds and planned braking and overtaking a little bit in advance to ensure I was efficient.

I did a quick two day tour to Chikmagalur and returned.
I filled up at a particular pump on Wednesday morning and filled up there again last night. No refueling in between.
Following the tankful method, I got an average fuel economy of 13.2 kmpl (595 kms and 45.03 litres). The on board computer shows 13.6. Pretty accurate I would say:
The total trip distance was a bit higher and I felt the fuel economy was pretty good again:
The below pic shows only the driving for yesterday. Chikmagalaur to Bangalore via multiple stops in Chikmagalur and Hassan:
The below pic shows the total trip stats for my drive from BLR to Chikmagalur with stops in Hassan, Belur, Mudigere and Chikmagalur:
The next pic is the total distance between the petrol pump in BLR (about 2-3 kms from my house) and Hassan:
The best fuel economy I saw was when I stopped for a quick break on the highway and also clicked these pics:

This is something I’ve learned from a fellow TBHPian and vRS owner Zebo. He drives smoothly and efficiently and doesn’t brake or accelerate unnecessarily. I try to incorporate some of his ideas and it ends up with me having a much higher fuel economy and a better average speed.
