Just my $0.02
1991 200 Avant: According to the trip computer (with random manual
calculations in between) I usually get 22-23-24 highway. City comes in
around 13-15-17 mpg. Once (ONCE!) I was VERY light on the gas pedal,
shifted as soon as possible, took my time accelerating, etc and got the trip
computer to read 26-27 mpg. I can't believe people on the list routinely
get 28+ mpg. 30+ mpg - no way! Unless you drive downhill - both ways - to
and from work :) If that's true, then I'm open to suggestions!
Again, just my $0.02
As a side note, my '97 Passat TDI is a different story - 40mpg city when I
*DOG* it and 47mpg highway averaging 75-80mpg. I'm convinced I could hit
50mpg if I drove a "sensible" 55-65mph. Not bad for a full-size, power
everything, best VW has to offer, vehicle. Now, if Audi would only ship
over the 2.6 (?) TDI in a quattro wagon, I could get rid of both cars...
Anybody in Europe have fuel consumption on that car?
