I still have mine, just rolled 85,000 miles. Averaging 36-37 mpg on my 65 mile commute. I have black soot on my tail pipes so waiting on the check engine light. I changed the base radio to vw navigation radio and added oem style fog lights.

I also have a RNS315 Nav radio waiting for use, just haven't installed it yet due to repeated hospital visits for surgery and physical therapy and some just utter laziness. I also have a set of projector headlights I haven't installed either. Mine was a new stop sale car so low mileage and long warranty. I am hoping the fuel economy will improve some like my other cars when it gets a few more miles on it. My commute is 25 miles one way, almost all highway, but rush hour traffic backups can bring things to a standstill at times.

We used to use my car for all of our trips and such. I have now stopped smoking though and I don't let my wife smoke in mine, so we take her Hyundai Santa Fe instead. So I rarely get the longer highway trips in mine any more, unless I am alone.

The hardest part of the rns 315 install is removing the ac vent on the driverís side, i broke mine and had to superglue it back together.

I just rolled 85,000 on ours also and we get a hand calculated 48 mpg with the cruise set on 70. I can get much better if I keep it around 60.

Are you saying all those driving 80 - 90 Mph and claiming 60 Mpg are wrong?

Here is my fuelly page.

http://www.fuelly.com/dashboard/

Best was 41 mpg and lifetime average of 35.3 mpg. I was doing 80-90 mph coming back from Wichita to Austin last time and there was no way it was going to get 60 mpg at those speeds. Lucky to get 35 mpg doing that. The 41 was going up there mostly at 65 mph on cruise.

I never got over 40 on road trips. '99 Beetle. Stock 1.9. I could never solve the EGR fault code with that car for as long as I owned it.(Crashed it in 2013) My current ride is a 2002 Jetta wagon,(VNT-17,.216 injectors,& tune) and I got 46.2 MPG on the most recent road trip, a few weeks back...
