Well done .... drive more worry less. I regularly run it to 0 range but it's a stretch to get to say 812 miles or 1300 km. I top off nose up and the most I have ever put in that 70 litre tank has been say 68 but I'm sure the filler neck has say 3 or 4 litres in it. I don't remember but from memory (which can be a little shaky!) "zero range" has something like a 6.5 litre reserve so there is your cooling .... drive more worry less! YOU ARE MY HERO. Kramer would be proud!

Most we've done on the 2012 was 800 or so. 650 was the most on the 'ol jetta
Same experience as 740GLE! Our best tank before Mod was 47 MPG, but typically 43 MPG. We just did a long trip after the fix and got 45 mpg. So the Mod actually improved for us.

The OP got 50 MPG on his 900 mile tank!

Filled up the car today. 729 miles and 16.122 gallons and 50 miles DTE. So about 45 mpg. This suggests that I underfilled on the 900 mile fillup, and didn't actually get 50 mpg previously. Likely I was a gallon or so short of full fill. My fuel gauge didn't go to full after the previous fill also, which led me to believe my MPG on the 900 mile tank was optimistic.
