Just wanted to share my record😁
I finally managed to go sub 12 kWh/100km in my Golf GTE equipped with the Astana wheels.

131182


This means driving 31 km and still having 19 km of range left😁
Average consumption of 11.9 kWh/100km.
Just a shame my trip ends here, maybe not completely fair to call it ‘50 km’, but you get the idea😉

What’s your record?
Has someone passed 50 km?

Just went for a slow joy ride (I usually have a heavy foot...). Around 16kms were done at 80-90km/h, the rest was just following traffic on regular roads. Did back and forth so total inclination is 0% (regen + ACC works really well). I also have Astana wheels ( I didn't like them at first then they grew on me, wouldn't change them now even if performance was the same 😅)

I just got my car, it has 188.000 kms on it and my guess is that it was driven without charging, so I might be able to pull a bit more out of the battery in a few cycles.

Very nice figures!
Do you know the capacity of the battery?
My guess is there is a chance the battery has worn a bit in 188.000 km, but if it’s let’s say 10% less than brand new, it’s still very acceptable for it’s mileage, i think!

Nop... Would I be able to get this with a regular OBD? If not, what and where should I buy whatever is necessary?

I think this was driven as a petrol, hybrid was just for incentives. It was a company car, at 188.000 kms in 5 years it's around 150kms / business day. If anything the degradation was for always being at a low charge. The car didn't even come with the charger, only the Type2 - Type2 cable which looks brand new. I would guess 10% degradation too.

I also read somewhere here on the forum that if the battery hasn't been used in a while it will limit the first few cycles, so there might be room for improvement. I want to do a couple more slow charge / full discharge cycles before starting to run the car like I normally would ( full throttle at every stop 😅 )

Hi, I bought a 2015/08 Golf GTE from the Netherlands last October with 103 KKm. When I first charge it was showing 45Km, now after 8 months but only 3000 Km with 1000 all electric it shows 44Km after full charge, I dont know if the computer uses the history information of my driving to give a more realistic range or if the batery just lost 1Km of autonomy in 1000 Km. About the range I usually make 30 to 35 but without big hills I thing 40 can be made.

The range shown after charging (44 km in your case) has nothing to do with battery wear so good news for you 😉
I know this because my indicated range has been fluctuating between 43 and 47 (yes, multiple times) and it’s calculated based on your driving style and average electric consumption (in both E-mode and GTE mode, so that’s why fluctuations can occur).

Happy motoring!

Flat Dutch roads must help. Despite my 16 inch Astana wheels on Michelin Primacy , my best is usually around 13.5 kWh/100km. But a lot of hills and start stop driving in the Bristol / Bath area where I live. And it's been cooler and rainy recently which doesn't help.

I have a lot of hills here where i live so it's hard to give an estimate. On average i can get 40+kms out of a full charge, if i limit the ups with the ICE and use it only on "almost" flat roads i get 50km BUT that's driving not more then 50-70km/h. Mine is a Passat from 2015, bought used with 130.000km on the teller. Was used mainly as a petrol engine (charger is new, still had the tags on them, the mennekes cable had slight scrapes so hardly used either) so i think that i should be good.

I also would like to know how to measure the SOH, if possible with "household diag tools" since i am not going to buy expensive VW software just to check my battery.....
