Is this calculated or displayed MPG? And is the trip computer pretty close to accurate?

Mine is numbers from the display. I saw several comments across different boards that people seem to find the display number between 5-10% inflated.
I calculated mine to read about 2-3 mpg higher than actual. Most of my driving is city... Though longer distance. But lots of stop/go, and much highway.

That is disappointing. In the Mk6 it seemed to be pretty accurate. But I too had seen reports of it being inflated in the Mk7.

Mine registered 63mpg over 20 miles on a flat highway at 65mph. I drive with a heavy throttle most of the time so i can't verify based on a full tank, but has anyone seen crazy numbers like this?

I averaged 60mpg over a slightly downhill portion of highway for about 70 miles.

Something to keep in mind for inflated numbers is WOT. When you punch it, it is highly unlikely the computer can accurately measure fuel.

Tracking for 650 miles with 540 in the can and 110 on the MFD tank 3 reads 57 but Fuelly # is 52.7

Nice! I'm hoping to get a long distance trip in sometime in the near future, to see if I can break into a 600mile tank. Most my driving is city, with little highway.

So far I'm more than happy with the fuel economy, coming from a VR6 Eurovan - this is a delight! And I can't remember ever having a car that was spot on in readying MPG's accurately in the system. MB E320 CDI, BMW 530i, Audi A4, VW Touareg .... They were all off by roughly similar margins.

640 tank this past weekend. Came in at 53 MPGs

I was expecting better than my Passat but three ranks in a row at 52 or better! Woot!

My current tank I am at 310 (gauge is 3/16ths to half) with 405 on the to-go meter. The "since fueled" gauge reads 60.2 (three miles above the long term of 57)

Will likely fall this weekend, baseball, soccer and shopping oh my!

I'm sure it's a little inflated, but decent none the less.

Just got to the hotel; this is now.

Can confirm that displayed MPG is inflated (44 vs 40 MPG). Both extended period and fuelly are tracking the same miles (minus this current tank).
