Default MPG impressions on 2015 Golf so far

1500 miles.
60-40 hwy/city
Mpg average 42
First three tanks mpg 39,42,47

Pretty happy since I've been using AC and driving pretty carefree and enjoying the sport and dsg rpms.
Tank is noticeably smaller and range will never allow 600

I am at 490m on 1st real tank with 125m showing as range. Probably won't make 600 on this tank but never is a very long time

I checked the specs at Edmunds and both the 2014 and 2015 Golfs are listed with a 14.5 gallon tank. http://www.edmunds.com/volkswagen/golf/2015/?sub=diesel

The 2013/4 Golf TDI had a 55 L or ~14.5 US Gal. tank. The 2015 has a 50 L or ~13.2 US Gal. tank.

I've been filling up around 375 miles. Mix of highway and local streets with a bike on the roof. Real test will be in two weeks when I have to drive 375 miles all highway to northern Vermont and back with the bike on the roof. Waiting patiently for Draw-Tite to release a hitch so I can get the roof racks off. I emailed them they told me they aren't even looking at hitches for the 2015s yet and to check back in about 6 weeks to see if they have started designing something.

Filed up twice, first one was about 38 mpg average and the second time with more highway driving I was up to about 41 mpg for the tank.

Default Lower profile tires

I was wondering how the ride is on the golf sel with the lower profile tires.I washed my Passat yesterday and noticed I have a sidewall bubble on one of the front tires.Car only has 4k miles on it.I've had my share of problems with these low profile tires . Bought the wheel and tire insurance this time around.

Second full tank 580 miles 52.7 MPG. For the tank. Fueled about 5 miles after the low fuel light went on (was convenient)

Mostly commute, country roads, some highway but in the mountains.

This car is dramatically better FE than my Passat, just outstanding.

Any other comments/impressions? Any comparison with the TDI? I ask because I'm kind of torn between the two.

I haven't had a chance to get a full tank average... but got 52.5mpg indicated on my 100 mile trip home today which included stop and go traffic, 30-40mph traffic, and then 70-75mph cruising once out of traffic.

Absolutely amazed at the mileage this car returns. VW has achieved 50mpg while meeting US emissions!

Totally music to my ears May be, I will ditch the dream of owning a 328d and go for another G baby (could never stand the "big" Camcord Passat with no xenons
