Took our 2015 GSW to Wisconsin for a wedding. Achieved a personnel best of 57.8 mpg driving from Knoxville TN to just south a Chicago. The other fill ups were about 56.5 mpg--the mountains affected the economy slightly.

Compared to all of you guys I am getting horrible MPG. I just filled up today and I'm only getting 38 MPG. Whats the problem you think? I know it has a lot to do with your foot but I am getting 46 to 50 with my MK4 Jetta and I drive the Golf the same way so something doesn't seem right. Any Ideas??

How are you getting your average?

Paper math the last 3 tanks.

I am dividing the miles by gallons filled up. The trip computer is right on the money with my math. When I bought my golf a couple weeks ago I drove it from Chicago to TN around 80 MPR and my wife was right behind me doing the same speed in our MK4 Jetta. I got 37 with the golf and my wife got 47 with the Jetta. and then when I filled up yesterday we got the 38 with the golf, this last fill up was mixed city/hwy.

It's all driving environment and habits. I'm having no problem exceeding 55 mpg regularly in my GSW DSG, but I only use it for commuting. No trips to the local store or anything like that. I also use common sense mileage techniques like coasting to lights and not driving like an asshat and whatnot.

I drive both a MKIV and MKVII and they tend to be in the very same range. 48-52mpg I would say is the average with some +/- tanks here and there.
Could always poke around for leaks with the car running?
