I adjusted the FE readout in the cluster in my '15 GSW using VCDS to 7% lower than it was reading. Pretty dead on now, maybe 1 MPG low for a full tank. There are instructions here somewhere on how to do it.

My BMW consistently reads 2-3 MPG low. And to the best of my knowledge I can't adjust it.

Honestly, I find the cluster FE readings annoying. I prefer to have a rough idea of how I'm doing by reading the fuel gauge, and then calculating FE when refilling. Less stressful.
