Default MPG since MODS

First full tank since the MODs(RC3, Nozzles, Clutch). Expected my mileage to go way down but I have 700 miles on the tank so far and I am 1 click above the red zone. I will fill up tonight and figure it out exactly but I think it's going to be good.

Jason did tell me to take it easy because of the new clutch and I have been following instructions since I got back to MN.

It's just killing me not to use my new superpowers. It's going to take me forever to break in that clutch!

But my other car will be done in a couple weeks. And it didn't need a new clutch.......

How long do you have to take it easy? I know how hard it is to wait! Hang in there, it will all be worth it as soon as you get to play around and not have to be so easy on the clutch.

Yes with RC3 and PP520's I still often see the 700 mile mark. Of course I can attribute that to most of my driving on 2 lane highways in rural WI where I am cruising at 60 mph.

But oh is it fun to punch it when I am on I-94 doing 75 and fly by a semi I am passing and keep it there til I hit 115 mph. I try not to do that very often but it is so tempting every time.

Jason suggested a couple hundred miles of city driving. Since most of my driving is freeway it will take a while to rack up 200 miles of city!

I've been pretty happy with my mileage since adding VNT17/22, PP502's, RC6, etc. I was concerned that MPG's would go down, but so far so good (now that I'm done playing and have those thirsty snow tires off)

Just shy of 900 miles and 59 MPG last tank with the below mods.

03 Jetta GL,Vented,Cat 2u Fuel Filter, DG Steel SP with MOGolf Mod, DG Ultra SS, 3" downpipe, 4" exhaust, CC Vent, 0.681 5th, Amsoil EaBP110 Bypass, Elf 506.01, Redline D4, Boost & EGT, Euroswitch, In Dash IP Kill Switch, PD Lift Pump, EGR Delete, PP502, RC6, Keystone, VDS-Pro, ScanGaugeII, BB Dual Diaphram Clutch, 3" Turbo Intake Tube, VNT 17/22, 3 Bar MAP, (37.4/53.0/75)

Working on a tank well into the 60's I hope next - Jeff, we need to talk sometime .

Having RC in my car has made my car better in MPG, I recorded 57 MPG with RC3 and PP520's, this was only one time driving like a granny, but even driving around the city I am getting now 44-46 before I was getting 40-42,,,of course if you step on the throttle it is a diferent story but you must remember that if you were to do that with any car and your MPG's would go down too.

LOL I dont enough self control to get over 45. I am going on vacation next month I will try to drive slow and report back. I am sure I can get over 50 but probably no much over 50. My best to date with my set up is 48.

Cool

I find myself having to use the cruise control a lot more to stay out of trouble since the modding began on my TDIs a couple of years ago.

I'm still able to get 700 miles out of a tank on my 02 Golf with "only" 279k miles on it. It's got RC3 and PP520 nozzles. I'm planning to go for a 3+ upgrade later on this year.

I got low 40s before the mods, and low 40s after the mods, so I'm a happy man.

Its a good idea to not slip a brand new clutch untill it has the chance to bed in gradually and without too much heat. (for most clutches, I have seen some long time ago that recomended intentional slipping as part of the break in). On a side note, I have fixed a few brand new clutches that came from the factory with warped discs by heating the crap out of them till they where smoking and then letting them cool. Works every time.



However, wot after the clutch is engaged is just fine and does not wear the clutch unless the one you put on is inadequate.

Every modder's fear: Getting more 'gofast' mods and having to follow it up a week or two later with a new clutch that you have to baby for a full tank. Better to pre-empt the clutch failure, I'd say.
