The EPA estimates and manufacturers' are a good barometer BUT, what MPG/MPL did you really get on your last tank of fuel?

Better because gas prices are falling some, that helps always. I believe I'm right no heavy calculations needed, just lower prices makes it simple no matter what you drive. Happy motoring!

I am averaging north of 31 mpg on my V-6 diesel sedan that is EPA rated 23/32.

2008 M-B E320

Last 5 tanks...

33.01
32.00
35.39
32.93
31.58

The lower overall mpg average is due in large part to lower winter fuel economy.

Don't know what MPG it was getting but..... I followed a Smart Fourtwo for approx.
40 miles @ 80MPH+...That little thing was a chittin and a gittin it. It was zipping by trucks and holding perfect lane placement. It was the first time I'd seen one above 45 MPH.

Traveling at those speeds sure caused me to get worse mileage though....
Temperature as high as 109 degrees (A/C was 100% of the time)
45.9 MPG 2013 Passat TDI (EPA 30/34/40)
Mostly Hgwy....
