Yep. Mostly following speed limits. This tank a bit higher than the last (5.65) because I did 200 km on the autoroute for the tank which was a total of 631.7 km, at 110 instead of my usual 105.

Very pleased with the car after 2 years. Zero issues other than a bit of wonkiness from Apple CarPlay until they updated the software, now works just fine. I drove my TDI at the same sorts of speeds and would average about 4.8-5 in summer.

I'm now up to 48k km, just nicely broken in; my wife is up to close to 5k km on her new wagon.

I know my son is really eager for me to be ready to trade. I want to upgrade to a wagon next time since we are going to have two homes soon, one in the west and one in the east, so we'll leave one car here and one at the other end of the country. Both need to be wagons if we do that.

TDI(s): 2001 Jetta

That's fantastic! I signed the papers on a Wolfsburg Jetta with the 1.4 so I'm really excited to hear you're getting that kind of consumption on a 1.8 even. I should have no issues matching the alh if i try as it's currently doing around 5.2L/100km.

As for jbright, I'm not getting that much better on my alh TDI so that's really impressive! Don't know what to do with my TDI though, don't want to get rid of it...

Like i was tearing up thinking about selling it... I've had it for 9 years almost, it's been more than a car to me

I can commiserate.

My 1/2-hour drive to buyback site was emotional. The torquey diesel never purred smoother. Same for clutch and 6M. This wagon was ME!

But the entire DEAL - - - (credit cards, buyback figure, a '17 Jetta 1.4/5M for $14.3 OTD, the pending Bosch $350) - - - allowed my head to outvote my heart.

HPFP + DPF concerns also factored.

best to all,
