averaged 54mpg driving to work over 65 miles one way. Had it on cruise control at 68mph.

Coming back home, same distance, stop and go traffic, computer showed 41.7mpg ... not bad considering its a DSG tranny with 17k miles on it.

My computer read 50.1-50.3 on my trip. When I fueled up I did the math and it came out to 46.5mpg. I wonder if there is a way to adjust values in the MFI.

I'm finding that my car is also VERY sensitive to temperature. Commuting (25 miles each way through mixed surburban traffic of highway and local roads) tanks have averaged as low as about 36 MPG in the coldest temps to as high as the mid-upper 40's in warmer temps.

Temps are warming up now. I'm sitting at almost 600 miles on this tank with a 1/4 tank left.

Using the VCDS tool you can adjust your mph and mpg readings to be more accurate. The 'how to' is posted here somewhere, I just couldn't find it in a hurry.

Thank you I will search. I do not currently own VCDS but I do plan to purchase it eventually.

Thanks

Come to the Impex GTG (see Eastern USA discussion forum) and we can adjust it for you. May 17th.

I'm driving a '12 6SM-just turned 43k miles. Switched to Sunoco last fall from generic brand and MPG's went back to where it used to be. This winter, though MPG's have dropped I'm achieving 54-55 MPG Hwy but city MPG's dropped to the mid 30's from the usual high 30's- low 40's.

No kidding you guys get some good numbers.

I'm at 37MPG lifetime, with somewhere in the neighborhood of 85%+ highway.

However, I'm only at about 6,000 miles lifetime, and I accelerate quickly (still breaking in) and drive 85-95 on the highway.

[EDIT: Paid better attention to my speeds since this post and taking into account the times where I'm going 75, average speed is probably closer to the low 80s. Would say the range where I spend 90%+ of my time is in the 75-90 range.]

Some here have reported a ~1mpg drop off for every ~1mph above 65. So driving 85-95mph probably explains your mileage. It just depends on what's more important to you--getting there fast, or getting better mileage on the way. 37mpg at 85-95mph is still very impressive.
