310k on my '02 Jetta. Only problem with it was that it was an automatic. Had to replace the tranny and get a manual swap. Now I'm getting 46-48MPG every tank.

I walk to work, the stores, cinema etc., so my '12 TDI only has 45xxx miles on it. But we recently ripped off a fun two-week trip from Western Oregon that covered Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio, Illinois, Minnesota and Montana. Averaged about 42.5 mpg.
