The Golf wagon with 6 speed usually gets (calculated) mid 40's around town and high 40's low 50's on road trips.

Recently got a stage 0.5 tune and some exhaust work.
Best tank so far on the highway at 65-70 mph is 59.3 mpg. I didn't quite believe it, started the car and and double checked the tank was full to the brim, it was.
Around town mileage is now low 50's.
Looking forward to some more fill-ups to confirm the above numbers

Looking at these numbers (length of ownership, miles, daily commute, fill ups, etc.) I wish the Fuelly app had the ability to display overall speed. Yes, it would not be easy and would require a lot more logging. Likely too much work, but seeing some of the numbers and Fuellys in signatures, it looks like there is a fair amount of TDIClub members stuck in traffic - when compared to their overall commute distance and FE reports.

with my most recent post, i was certainly not stuck in traffic

slow speeds (45-60 on US1 to key west) and warm temps were friendly!

Your post was exactly what made me realize how important it is to see the trip speed!

I always try to out my information from the MFD in the comments on Fuelly. There is definitely a correlation in average speed and the MPG for the tank. I usually try to take the least congested route but sometimes still get caught. Iíve also noticed a difference when it is hot and Iím running the ac more the efficiency goes down.

First road trip to Montana with 2015 golf 6m with 36k . Car was a pleasure to drive and Once again I am impressed . Maybe the outa state fuel is better ? . 2 kids the wife and loaded to the roof with camping gear Averaged 50mpg hand calculating over 3400 miles( MFD showed 54mpg ) Best tank 52, worst was 46.
Car would do hand calculated 50 mpg @ 75. 46-47 mpg @ 80. This is 4000ft + elevation with 70+ temps. FYI my normal foothill driving average is about 43 mpg.

My wife has a '13 DSG beetle and a kinda rotten commute sometimes, so I had predicted upper 30's when we picked it up two months ago. So far it has been spot on. I got a 40 MPG tank by taking a ~300 mile road trip in the middle of it. That was as fast as traffic would bear
She never strayed far from ~44 MPG with the manual MkIV beetle for several years on that same commute. She has a couple of kinds of arthritis, so the shifting was getting old.
She couldn't be more pleased with the new car.
