Default vag mod worth doing

was in a 15 with this mod, makes that flat spot disappear in the accelerator
[Direct Acceleration - Throttle response]
With this mod, you can change the behavior of the accelerator. Option B provides a more linear acceleration without sudden deliveries.
1 - Module 44 - Power steering. then in security box enter Code (19249) after that
2 - Adaptation
3 - Select - switching driving profile
Choices :
A - Gradual, controlled by time
B - Directly controlled threshold value

This made my manual drive more predictable, when shifting can now manipulate the throttle, matching speeds for smooth gear changes like in the older cars. Like it should be.

I wondered if MPG would suffer and seems to not have bothered it at all, at least with my driving style.

I agree, it makes a noticeable difference.

I've heard about this mod - just curious- why does this setting come standard from VW - what is the purpose of a non-linear throttle for the everyday driver?

I had assumed that the speed and the responsiveness of the TDI was slow (because it was a diesel).

Probably because they do not want unintended wheelspin on a small FWD car with a small V8's worth of torque on tap not much off idle.

There are LOTS of modern cars that nerf the output of the engine at lower speeds and/or in lower gears.

This is why my old VAG diesels were so fantastic in the snow, even just being FWD with no locking diff or traction control of any kind. With only 52hp and around 85tq, it simply didn't have the power to spin the tires, even in snow. It just slugged right on through like a yak.

Throttle Response + Starting Vibrations + Dynamic steering are the holy trinity of Mk7 Vag-Com/OBD11 changes.

My only guess for that extra .5MPG by smoothing out response. EPA numbers are key.
