This car is a kids taxi, lots of off/on/off, short trips. Several extended long roadtrips, and weekend "Italian tune-ups" to help clean things out. In town, I get right at EPA 30mpg, highway can still see 45mpg
I was expecting more ash than this, as I know TDIs prefer steady-state highway cruising. Some here predicted early DPF clogging, but so far, so good!
