    Real World MPG with DSG

    I bought my NMS (DSG) in July. I have about 10500 miles on it so far. My overall average is hovering right around 43 mpg. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Yes the NMS do have bigger tanks, 18.5 gallons I believe. I have put 17 gallons in mine once.... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Passat NMS VCDS Tricks / Upgrades

    I'll have to test this out on my car.... I'd still prefer they came on with intermittent wipers though. Thanks. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    This ^^^ Most vehicles with auto lamps I have owned did this automatically. Wipers on = lights on..... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Let's talk coolant temps

    More observations. My Passat takes a long time to reach full operating temperature. This morning ambient temps were in the mid 30's F. My morning trip today consisted of 1/8 mile in my neighborhood, followed by 2 miles on a 45 mph road, followed by 18 miles of interstate at 65 mph before it...

    700 Mile club Who's in?

    On a recent trip from SC to Daytona FL with the cruise set on 80 mph I got 42.3mpg (2013 NMS SE DSG). I usually pull better mileage around home where I average slower speeds (65 or so). I also see much much lower economy in city driving with the A/C on... Your economy sounds about right to me...

On a recent trip from SC to Daytona FL and back running 80 mph on cruise I saw 211-215 average temps. Economy and drivability seemed fine, but the temperature seemed a little...

    Real World MPG with DSG

    Lifetime average over only 5000 miles with my '13 DSG Passat... 43.2. Lifetime average over 66k miles with my '11 Jetta 6m.... 44.8. The trend in my data shows a bigger more comfortable car with the DSG is going to get equal or better mileage over the long haul as my Jetta did. That's my $0.02...

    Just pumped 18.6 gallons

    Due to a crazy week last week I drained my tank down to just above "E". I traveled 769 miles and put 17.45 gallons in. That was in line with the economy numbers I've been seeing at 44 mpg. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk - now Free
