Default You know you love your 2012 NMS Passat TDI when...

you fill up at the pump, burp the tank numerous times until almost overflowing, and you just got another 50+ MPG tank out of your car. Has happened to me twice now in my 6 Man.

... when you get twice the tank range as a holier-than-thou hybrid.

When you fit 2 adults, a two year old, a 10 mo old, a double stroller, a tricycle and luggage for a 4 day trip for all 4 in it, have more leg room than in your wife's Tahoe, and get over 40mpg doing it!

When you have friends or co workers ride with you and when you mention it is a diesel they don't believe you. Have a friend that after 2 months still didn't believe me till I went to fill up one day with him in the car and I proved it to him that I do indeed put diesel fuel in it...

By cheating in the calculations. At least that's how I understand the OP's post.

You need to ask NoBlueScreen, he is the Jedi Master of the 50+ MPG tank club.

When you constantly correct people about diesel in the tank, not gas!

When you manage to fit a 10' x 13' oriental rug in the trunk, with room to spare, and can still close the trunk lid.
