It's because I can't stop driving this one:

That was trip tank coming east from Wisconsin to MA a couple weeks ago. Headed to NC in that car tonight.

Nice. You should give IBW a good wash/detail when she turns over 400k. That's a loyal car.

I signed up when we bought the 2011, but never came here much because the car ran so well, so I never had any questions.

Okay, I'll search for VCDS, but I suspect it will show up alone most of the time, without explanation.

Yep, the at home diagnostic tool that allows users to go into the cars programming and change things or take measurements.

My current screen for FE. The grey line is what the MFA says and the actual line is calculated. The problem got worse when I got my Kerma Tune, I just figured the ecu was being fooled by the tune and the calculations were based on a stock formula. Pre-tune the numbers where much closer to reality.

MPG is going to vary just as much as everyone's driving style, use of the car and other variables vary.

my 2015 is 10% optimistic exactly. I tired to fix it with VCDS but couldn't really get any changes to display properly
