What MPG are you guys getting?
 
Hi everyone. I'm just wondering what everyone's mileage is.

Car: 2013 2.5L with 6 speed auto, Eurojet exhaust, and Carbonio intake
Driving style: 75+ on highways, spirited on local roads (usually in tiptronic mode)
MPG: 28-29 MPG when it was 90% highway, 26 MPG when it's 50/50.

There's an overall average on our MFD. So, in 70k miles, I've averaged 31.7mpg. I drive mostly two lane with some highway. Not much stop and go and I'm not in the city much.

I don't actually know/care but I did notice that my MPG / KmPG was higher by 10% when I did an axleback install of the GTI muffler.

The highest I've ever seen was 36.1.

I probably average about 27, but see 28-29 mpg a lot too.

avg in the winter about 22 in the summer about 26 or 27

550-600 kms per tank. 90% highway

When people post km/mi per tank, the tank is a pretty unreliable measure. I fill mine before it gets to 1/4 empty, meaning I never do better than 300 miles. Anytime I see the gas light on other people's cars I start panicking a little

somerset9 04-19-2017 01:48 AM

Also, I think the MFD overestimate highway MPG and underestimate city MPG. Whenever I reset the trip meter and go on a long highway drive I get 39 mpg and if it's only city miles since reset, 21 mpg. The most accurate measure is to fill your tank to the max each time, reset your trip, and then next time you fill up, divide trip miles by gallons of fuel filled

If you fill up at different gas stations ethanol content affects your gas mileage as well.

Good habit, saves your fuel pump as well.

I was in CA last year and find a gas station is the least of your problem in that state. Well except for driving on CA-1 near Big Sur.

If you fill up near empty like me , you may have gotten lucky and got the early "fun gearing" rather than the lazy a$$ "fuel efficient gearing" found in later models.

At 120km what is your RPM ?

2010 2.5L, bone stock using 87 octane; 26-27 mpg on 70/30 city/hwy. When I drive out to Syracuse from Rochester, I take backroads and smaller highways that are max 55mph limit, that gets me 33mpg at an avg of ~60mph. If I am driving to visit family in MA it's more like 28 mpg at ~70mph. The MA trip can vary a lot if it's a headwind or tailwind or heavy traffic. I've hit as high as 33mpg and low as 25mpg on that trip before.
