    VW Golf SV economy

    When travelling to & from work on the motorway I regularly see around 60mpg. Last two days Ive not better 48mpg.
    Also the radiator fan is running when I park up & switch off.
    Is this the DPF cleaning itself?

    Sounds like it could be getting blocked, you need to use a diagnostic system to see what the Ash and Soot loading figures are.

    What is the mileage?

    As suggested: You need to get your motor scanned (preferably with VAG-COM\VCDS) for any error codes logged in the ecu and post them, that will save a lot of guessing and check systems out.

    Soot and Ash content.

    Mileage 34900.
    Going to work tonight saw 64mpg at a steady 60-65.
    Used it for a couple of days & the fans not come on.
    No lights were present on the dash when it did whatever it did.
