Hi
Not T5 related but I was wondering if anyone knows the average mpg for a caddy. Im thinking of selling my T5. Cant find anything online about mpg other than reviews that say around 50 55 mpg on the 1.9s 104. One fella on here says its the same mpg as he was getting from transporter.

Any info would be great

Thanks

If you are used to a big van, you will regret it. Believe me, I did it and went back to a T5 after about 4 months. If you do get a Caddy, get the 140PS as they go like fuck and do 40mpg, even when driven hard.

Thanks Tony. I would get on average about 35 36 mpg from the T5. Itsnot much mpg for a small van is it? If driven around 60mph would you get more from the 140?

Definately. I had a Caddy Sportline and it is the law that they have to be driven fast.
I have a T5 facelift 102 now, and that does 40mpg.

I do like the CaddySmile and agree it makes sense to go for the 140 as the re-sale will be better aswell as they are harder to come by.
Try Swiss Vans if going new they are offering some great deals.
I thought about a black one but to much cleaning for me and the silver one just didnt do it for me so Ravenna Blue I think.
