For some time now I had been looking on the internet for good deals on VW Turbo Deisel (TDI) vehicles. They put the TDI engines in the Beetle, Jetta, Passat, and Golf. The website www.fueleconomy.gov lists vehicles and their respective fuel economy, VW TDI vehicles consistently rank at the top in mpg, upwards of 50 mpg on the highway.
I’ve had mine for a little over one month now. For the most part, I have been doing city driving and been averaging 38 mpg. However, this past weekend I drove to St. Louis and back. On the return trip, I kept my RPMs low and averaged around 67 mph. After returning home I filled the tank back up to discover I had gotten 55 mpg on the trip home.
