I was recalling - - IIRC - - the DSG versus 6M highway fuel economy differential was linked to final drive ratio,.......................

Where has this sailor gone awry?

I have a favorite late night road trip loop that I like to do. I've done it with ALL my vehicles, multiple times. Cars, trucks and motorcycles. It's exactly 100 miles. It involves some 60 to 65 mph two-lane, several miles through a small town with some stoplights, a fun blast up a mountain two-lane and then descending the winding road down the other side, a 35 mile up-and-down but largely straight two-land, and finally a 20 mile blast on 80 mph interstate.

Sometimes I do it for fun. Other times for fuel economy. So I can compare and contrast.

My Evil Beetle never did better than 47 mpg on the loop. My 2015 Passat (DSG + Phase One reprogramming) did an astounding 55 mpg.

At 80 mph, dead level and zero wind, the instantaneous fuel economy reading hovers around 45 mpg.

I consider that more than adequate. Zero complaints here.

p.s. When I hit a jackrabbit with the Evil Beetle on that loop the result was $800 in damage. I hit TWO of the little buggers with the Passat and didn't hurt the car a bit. Killed the bunnies deader then hell, though. So....WINNING.

Our 2014 Passat SE TDI DSG had the fix a few weeks ago. First long trip, south east of Phoenix AZ to Reno NV. Filled up at home and than in Tonapah NV. 546 miles on odomiter, fill was 12.399 gallons at $2.33. calculated 44.035 miles per gallon. Quite a bit of the drive is hilly up 6200'.

From the fill up in Tonapah to Reno and running around in Reno and back to Tonapah. Fill up in Tonapah 552.7 miles, 13.043 gallons@$2.399 42.375 miles per gallon. Tonapah to home 539.3 miles, 11.977 gallons@$2.399 = 45.028 miles per gallon. TOTALS 1638.0 miles, 37.419 gallons diesel for an average of 43.77 miles per gallon.
