    Can a bad MAF effect MPG?

    Use Tire calculator @ http://www.1010tires.com/tiresizecalculator.asp to see what your tire difference is. My tires on Jetta were 205/55-16s and I replaced my tires with 205/60-16. New tire has a greater diameter by 3.16%. Odometer and mileage will be off by 3.16%. If your new tire size is a...

    Kumho eco Solus HM KR22

    I put a lot of miles this week on my Jetta this week. I averaged 53.2 mpg. I really expected my mileage to be lower because for at least 150 miles I was going 75mph. One thing I forgot to mention is that I am running B50, but I've really never found any fuel mileage loss due to B50.
