What are the real mpg figures for a Volkswagen Golf V?

Can you provide the real mpg figure for a 2008 1.4 Volkswagen Golf and Golf Plus TSI SE DSG 5-door. The figures on the list don't distinguish between petrol and diesel.

Golf V here: www.honestjohn.co.uk/realmpg/volkswagen/golf-v-200.../ Figures for 1.4 TSI, but not DSG. Golf V Plus here: www.honestjohn.co.uk/realmpg/volkswagen/golf-plus-...5. 1.4 TSI DSG got 41.3mpg. A 1.4 TSI is not a diesel.

A taller, roomier, more versatile version of the Golf Mk V. Good ride and reasonably tidy handling. The 2.0 TDI 140 DSG is the one to have.
Decent handling and comfortable on the move, impressive TSI engines, massive improvement over the previous Golf, high-economy Bluemotion models, high quality feel of interior, five-star Euro NCAP safety rating.
