The paper presents a direct comparison of convergence properties of finite volume and discontinuous Galerkin methods of the same nominal order of accuracy. Convergence is evaluated on tetrahedral grids for an advection equation and manufactured solution of Euler equations. It is shown that for the test cases considered, the discontinuous Galerkin discretisation tends to recover the asymptotic range of convergence on coarser grids and yields a lower error norm by comparison with the finite volume discretisation.
