All you guys should do this and see what kind of #'s you are getting.

I've got better gas mileage with stock mode (300 miles/tank).
But, I get about 250 miles/tank with revo stage 2.

I average 25.x city driving, 2 door 6mt gross weight around 3000 lbs
traffic is usually light, where I live is a few hundred feet over sea level
almost got 9000 miles on it, last fillup checked out at 27.1 mpg ( all city )

I don't get much freeway driving but going by the MFD I get anywhere from 32-33
when going 75-80 mph to 37-38 mpg when going 60-65

My computer is optimistic just like one of the previous poster said, 1-1.5 better than calculated. My city driving #'s I'm able to calculate myself. The computer tells me my
range is 435 or so when I fillup

VW site says the DSG has better EPA rating than the MT ( city )
I've never seen that on other cars and I'm skeptical that its true in real world driving with
this car either

In my 2.5 I get 9-15mpg if I'm on it, and about 20 if I drive like a grandma. Our town is stop light after stop light after stop light though. Takes like 15 minutes to travel 2 miles across town.

Miles per tank tells us nothing.

1. Don't run the a/c.
2. Accelerate briskly to the speed limit, then get off the gas and shift to the highest possible gear to coast.
3. Pray to God/Jesus/Satan that you catch most of the lights green.

Use your MFD to train your foot. Unless St Louis is a small town, I don't think that city size matters.

What's weird is I get better mileage with the A/C on on the highway. For some reason boost creeps up slower and I can keep it below -10 vacuum. It's marginal, but better by 1-2 MPGs.. It's stage II though, in stock mode this theory is out the window. I've been playing the MPG game to and from work since it's all highway boringness and now my overall average is at 29! I miss back road driving though...

According to my MFD, I'm getting around 23-25 in the city and I can pull close to 31 on the highway if I'm doing around 70mph.

If I take it easy, I can manage to get up to 27city/32hwy, but having a GTI doesn't really help LOL, I can barely take it easy on this car. It also depends on the type of roads you are driving on, and the slopes of the roads. Going to work i get 28-29 MPG hwy, and coming back I manage to do 32, sometimes 33 MPG hwy, and is the exact same trip, but going to work is more of a climbing slope than coming back.
