Are Volkswagen owners seeing a reduction in mpg since the emissions fix?

It's early days still, but since I had the emissions fix on my Volkswagen Golf 1.6 TDI I seem to only be getting 39mpg when I used to get 44mpg. Have other owners noticed any significant reduction in mpg?

Yes. next thing to fail will be the EGR if it has not recently been replaced anyway.
