I've not seen so much of an increase in MPG, but have noticed it's been pretty consistently the same as before. Performance (torque, mainly) seems like it *might* be down a tiny bit - or that could just be my fear of decreased performance. But yes, 48-52 is just about the range I've been experiencing (also hand calculated - the dashboard display is wildly optimistic!).

And here I thought I had read the settlement docs pretty closely. Apparently not. Thanks.

See above - really not all that different for me. Thankfully. Whew!

FWIW - I've put about three fill-ups through since PH 2 was completed. And one 1K mile round-trip from here in Central VA to Central NY and back. But even around town seems to still be pretty good (even better than after PH 1 was done).

I couldn't wait to get out of my "loaner," which was Hertz giving me a "choice" between a yaris or versa.

A used Golf or Jetta off the lot was not a better proposition from the dealer's perspective because VW is probably taking a volume discount contract from a big rental company for loaner. Imagine that.

Dodge gave me a new Cherokee when I went in for airbag replacement on my Ram 2500.

All the dealers around me that I've asked have always used rental companies for their loaners. This has been going on for many years and isn't specific to dieselgate so I wasn't expecting anything different this time around

Our dealer is a big conglomerate with VW, Toyota, Subaru, Dodge, Jeep, etc., etc. stores all over the Baltimore area, and they have an on site Enterprise agent. My last loaner was a Tiguan demo unit.

I have no bone in this 2015 stuff as I have a Gen 2 2014. When I took it in for the fix they(EVS Menomonee Falls WI) gave me a 2017 GSW Altrak as a loaner for the day they took to install my fix. BTW I'm happy with it and the cash was just one more bonus after the 2 $500 cards and the Bosch money.. I bought the car new for cash and it's like now I only paid $18k for the car when new. The car has 44k on it now. No issues with the fix except warm up time. I also got an extended warranty on just about anything except the transmission. The buyback looked very good but I still have a very nice car without all this 2015 banter about how 2015 is a great car but a unicorn and everybody trying to devise a long-term warranty plan to their benefit.
