Real World MPG - 6 speed Manual
 
Just wondering what everyone is seeing relative to their mpg on these Passat 6 speed manuals....Highway/city/mix?

wolfsburg_de October 21st, 2011 11:55

I am averaging 30 mpg with 100% city (10 mph avg) on this tank. My commute is very short and it takes a while for it to warm up. On the first tank, I saw 38.6 mpg with maybe 40% city, 60% hwy. On the highway, it definitely returns solid 40's into low 50's depending on your speed and conditions. Beating the 43 mpg EPA hwy estimate is a piece of cake.

Would like to tell you, but my passat tdi 6mt is sitting in a rail car. Was loaded on 10/5 and am still waiting. But when I get it, commute is 30% city 70% highway in social so I will have traffic, I will let you know.

36 suburb traffic/city, 48 highway.... ~44 with a 70/30 mix.... I have about 700 miles on the car so far... my all time worst average so far has been 32mpg.

Are these values you guys are listing per tank averages or just trip mileages? cause I've seen 20mpg and a 58mpg on my 2010. yet my tank averages have been around 43-48mpg.

It does look like the Passat will really shine on long 65 mph highway runs where it'll eat the miles and post great numbers! all fingers crossed!

Guy, thanks for the fuel economy feedback. Sounds like this new motor iteration gets only ~2 MPG less than a 2006 BRM. Having a lifetime average of 47.2 for 182K on mine, I expect to be pleased with the new Passat.

740- My read out is based on Trips....only been to the pump once. I should be visiting it again by the weekend. 877 miles in 11 days.

Only 877 in 11 days? pfft you don't deserve the TDI, hahaha

oil hammers going to drive over to you're place and remove your TDI, you're not worthy!

Hey, I'm representing the city MPG people, proving that a TDI is not strictly a highway car. Averaging 29.9 mpg with an average speed of 11 mph is better than lots of hybrids, I bet. :)

689 miles in 12 days!!

I thought the city is where the hybrids shine?

gergg October 25th, 2011 09:35

I average about 4000 miles a month.

Yeah, you're right. I admit it, I just like the torque ... and having a manual. :)
