Mix matched half bald baloonies. Who knows what psi on 16s.

44mpg on paper easily. 52 if I draft a semi or some other idiot trying to bust wind @ 60mph.

09 jetta wagon with 230k miles.

Sent from my s-off'ed m7 with cm11!

Thanks for the feedback. Lately, I'm using 37 psi too.

I'm guessing flow of traffic is probably 80MPH, so you were going 15MPH slower than about everyone else? At least 10MPH.
Well, it's not as bad as it seems. Where I drive, the traffic is very light and the sight distances are long; any half-way intelligent driver coming up behind me is going to have plenty of time to safely move to the passing lane. Also I'm often behind a big truck, which means they have to move over anyway to pass the truck. When traffic gets heavy I always keep up with the traffic.

It's just that not all drivers are half-way intelligent. It's irritating how often they will sit on your bumper when it is easy to pass. Especially at night - what am I supposed to do if a deer runs out in front of me?

Default Winter weather MPG...

Just recorded my 5th worst tank in 57K miles. 46.2 MPG. Lots of snow/ice and some rain. Guess a guy can't complain too much.

Last tank at 54.11 MPG pushed me over 20K miles of ownership (44.8K miles total).

Running average now just over 52 MPG at 52.05.

Nice. Long commute? I used to get good numbers (49.5 MPG average) driving 40 miles each way, but my current 11 mile commute has me down closer to 40 MPG the past ~10000 miles. Still not bad, but I miss those awesome days hitting 58 MPG under perfect conditions (that number based on MFI; all others based on hand calculation).

Hey Lincoln - My commute is 60 miles freeway round trip and I try to drive off-peak as much as possible. I'm fortunate in that we have other cars so I'm able to pick and choose when I drive the Passat to best avoid traffic.

I have not experienced a decrease. Are you using the MFD to determine your mileage or calculating at fill-ups?

I use Fuelly. I know my mpg has dropped I feel like my proformance has too, that's harder to measure without mixing emotion in it.

Fuel economy goes down when the air temperature decreases. Are you sure that is not the issue?
