I am excited to try on the next Fest, my commute to the fest and back was about 12 miles which I made about 6 times in 4 days and late at night on backroads of ohio, average speed around 60 including stop signs . I think my average mpg for the Fest was around 40

I'd need to see 'verification' before I'd accept these numbers Tim ... I've seen your foot in action and it's heavier than lead!

Hi all, Sorry for the late response, I have been in Europe for 2 1/2 weeks without cell phone or computer.

Whitedi05 I have responded to your PM's and as soon as you give me the numbers I will update the results.

Windjammer here is a link to the write up documenting my route and techniques for the fuel economy run.

I normally drive a Prius, my wife's car is the TDI. This year in for the TDIfest, I switched cars and drove the Jetta for the month prior to TDIfest and for the fuel economy run. I am back to the prius now.

I think the the 06 Jetta TDI is pretty consistant in the high 60's to low 70's MPG on the highway using just some of the basic hypermiling techniques as I described in the write up.

Also for all of you local Cincinnati people, we are having a meet up on the 12th of October in Ft Thomas, KY. We are calling it MPGfest. More on this later.

Keep us posted as it sounds interesting.

On a lessor note, I was heading back to Cincinnati on I-71 north of Columbus Ohio from a trip last week and passed a long back up of vehicles on I-71 only to find out that the car backing them all up was a VW Golf TDI with Indiana plates. It was traveling about 50 mph and I started wondering if this was a 'hypermiler' or someone who intake manifold needed cleaning?
