Was hoping to cross the 54mpg threshold on this tank but got stuck in bumper to bumper for 1/2 hour plus took a back roads trip on Easter. Never thought I'd see the day when I'd be mildly disappointed with 53+mpg.

Regular work commute, a trip to Roseville, and a 500 mile blast to Temecula and then filled up in Pomona. mostly cruise set at 65. Had a bit of an interesting snow storm & ice over the grapevine, heavy rain on the way down, and high winds.

Pomona-Fairfield-Davis-Winters-Sacramento-Rocklin-Vacaville. all highway, mostly 70+mph. had a few good blasts up to... . Got the car stuck in the mud at the Niello VW Ride to Walk Ranch Run (Charity Drive). It took a half dozen guys to push it out again. This tank was driven with compete disregard to MPG. I'm quite happy with it.
