Thanks for the info. I was wondering...
And I guess mine may fall a bit since I got the phase 2 work done today.

Updated EPA sticker.

I think those numbers are actually higher than the original FE numbers, although only by 1 MPG.

If the GSW and Golf had the same mileage, that's correct. The Monroney sticker on the 2015 GSW TDI DSG states: 35 combined, 31 city, 42 highway.

It's amazing how much better the cars do in the real world.

I drove non stop 481 miles, and still had over a 1/3 tank.

Flat ground, 65.

Could of drove faster, but I had 9 bottles of 190 pf everclear behind mu seat.

As long as they haven't been opened it shouldn't be an issue. Unless you are under age. That last 1/3 goes way faster than the first 1/3. For both of those fuels!

190 proof isn't legal in quite a few states. 95% pure alcohol is dangerous stuff straight.

the other thing is in some states you can only legally carry xxxx_? amount at one time without a state permit....

just be careful you know the laws state to state if you are going to carry it across state lines... in parts of the south, you do not carry alcohol across state lines unless you want some real trouble...

About 1,300 miles since purchase just before Christmas. Best tank 46.7 (all highway steady 65 & 75 MPH per speed limits and per dash speedometer) Worst tank 33.2 (all city stop and go). Average over 7 fillups 38.9. I noticed that the MFD is very accurate on the city MPG but it was somewhat optimistic on the highway MPG.

Tracked 669 miles through Fuelly so far on my 2015 GSW (plus the current tank about 260 miles). Pretty happy with the mileage.

First tank was 36.6 with a fair bit of in town and traffic driving (quite literally I believe the first full tank ran through the car since it was fixed with Phase 1). Second tank was 37.8 mpg with slightly more highway mixed in. Keep in mind about 8 miles of my commute home from work is about a 6% incline highway at 65 mph or so on a semi windy road! Also, living in a rather hilly part of California.

I am very happy with this car so far, the mileage is more than double what I was getting before and it rides really smooth with a good sounding stereo! I will be topping off tomorrow before I head to school. Always laugh at the pump how quickly it pumps 7-9 gallons compared to the 20 gallons on average I was pumping before, not to mention the price difference!

Tucson-Northwest Phoenix (Sun City West) and back (350 miles) with about 10% of it city today got 45.2. 75 MPH most of the way and ran AC for about an hour. Pretty pleased with that.
