For what it's worth, I do mostly highway with limited city driving.
I get about 45-48 year round. A tank or two in the 30s in the
middle of winter, and a few in the low 50s during the heat
of summer. That's the 91 Jetta. The 03 Jetta does a little
better. For example, last year I did a round trip of 2300
miles. Nominally, at the low 50's. 55 peak tank reading,
when driving the BlueRidge on I-81. There's too much error
in filling a tank to bank on just one filling.
The 03 handles untreated fuel better in the winter.
