Fuel Economy: too new to tell

I wasn't showin off to anyone but myself... just out having FUN if you know what I mean. You know how it is when a jammin song comes on the radio and ya just gotta kick up some dust. (ok, maybe you don't if you are shooting for 58MPG)

I'm a 33-38MPG man in day to day driving with my 5-speed manual PD100 Jetta. I've gotten as high at 42MPG on the trip home from the TDIFest. I kept a steady 75MPH the whole way home - no stops - fuel station to fuel station and it was exactly 42MPG. Now keep in mind I only had about 3000 miles on the car at the time, but my wifes Passat following me got the EXACT same 42MPG - and her's is the 134PD motor with tiptronic auto trans. hmmm?
