    Real World MPG - 6 speed Manual

    That's awesome, I remember in the early days of these cars when I reported similar mpg's people on this forum wanted to throw me overboard, glad you are finding similar performance. I no longer own the Passat, but it has nothing to do with car, loved it.

    Goodbye golf DSG , Hello Passat 6M !!!!

    I had the same two cars, the 6m Passat got 20-25% better mpg's.....even better in some cases.

    JD Power survey

    I received 2 surveys.....the 1st one had a $1 bill, the 2nd one had a $5 bill in it. I answered honestly, and the 2nd one had a lot more questions.

    12' Mazda 6 to 13' Passat SE TDI 6MT

    48mpg is doable, that is about what I averaged, but you are going to have to be careful with the right foot to average that.

    Fan running after shutoff

    I hardly ever had the fan running after turning off the engine, most of my runs were 30+ miles so maybe this had something to do with it.

    Real World MPG with DSG

    Mine is very difficult to fill consistently, I have a certain pump/station that I use almost every time so I've gotten it down pretty good, but if I use a different pump with a different ground angle I will get different results. Crazy as it sounds if I have the nose of the car pointing up...

    New Yellow labels for Passat TDIs?

    Yep, I got them too....maybe they figure a fair number of those HPFP failures could have been avoided with the new yellow

    Real World MPG - 6 speed Manual

    OK Niner, you don't make me laugh very often, but that was funny ;) Yeah, the wife loves the Passat as much(or more) than I do, I've been trying to convince her that it is smart to sell it, Eh, not gonna happen, guess I need to attend some more sales

    Real World MPG - 6 speed Manual

    Probably 60/40 most of the time, and my 40% "city" is a 20 mile section of road that can have 8-10 stop lights, meaning 0-70 & 70-0 which really kills mpg's...BUT, there are times where I may only hit 1 or 2 lights then it really isn't much of a mix and I can see 54-58 mpg's on my computer over...

    Selling Passat-What Price?

    Thanks to everyone who responded. I may be crazy for not selling it as I had quite a few people interested in buying it at 23k+, but for now I'm going to keep it.

    New (Unmodified) 2012 VW Golf TDI w/ DSG - MPG Observations

    I had a 2011 Golf TDI dsg and I averaged about 40-42mpg's over its lifetime. Just for reference my current 2012 Passat TDI 6M averages around 48-50mpg's over the same routes. The Passat does get significantly better highway mpg's than the Golf and similar city mpg's....of course I'm comparing...

    Selling Passat-What Price?

    I've had several people locally interested in the car(as well as out of state calls), of course a verbal offer is not cash in hand so if I were to sell it we'd this point it may be a moot point as I'm considering keeping it.

    Selling Passat-What Price?

    Hey Niner, in Georgia you don't pay taxes on a private sale so that is a $1750 savings from buying at a dealer, and you don't have to pay for dealer fees, another $750ish. So in Georgia, pay $25,000 new + $1,750 taxes + $750 fees = approx $27,500 out the door at the dealer.....glad I'm not...

    Selling Passat-What Price?

    That was the plan/reason, but I may end up keeping it for a while.....has nothing to do with the car, I love the car, one of my favorites.
