getting about 40-45 on the highway right now... and 30-35 city. I think the winter diesel blend is to blame because I was getting 45-50 in the summer/fall.
I can't say that it is a winter blend because one week I was getting 46 and the next I was lucky to get 38. Im sure it has to do with my tires and wheels, but I didn't think the difference would be that much. I guess thats what I get for being a noob.

48mpg on hwy and the car has only 900 miles (stock 16" wheels). I have no plans on lowering the vehicle but I do want to replace the 16" wheels for 17's in the next days or so. Looking for a set of wheels at vwkeffer now :)

My car is a '12 TDI 6 speed manual, stock

So far, calculated is as follows. My calculated mpg is lower than what the car reads, I just started tracking the difference. I drive mostly city driving but did take a small highway trip on tank #6.

Tank 1: 36.61 mpg
Tank 2: 35.26 mpg
Tank 3: 35.92 mpg
Tank 4: 38.08 mpg
Tank 5: 37.79 mpg
Tank 6: 41.81 mpg
Tank 7: 38.95 mpg Car read 40.3 for a 3.5% error to the reading

Overall average: 37.84 mpg calculated by hand

Is this fuel economy for the entire tank of fuel. Cause if so that's a good average unless it's 100percent highway
Mine is for the entire tank, not highway

Tank 2: 35.26 mpg 13.083 gallons 479 miles
Tank 3: 35.92 mpg 11.922 gallons 420.4 miles
Tank 4: 38.08 mpg 12.426 gallons 446.4 miles
Tank 5: 37.79 mpg 13.457 gallons 512.5 miles
Tank 6: 41.81 mpg 12.806 gallons 484 miles
Tank 7: 38.95 mpg 13.170 gallons 513 miles Car read 40.3 for a 3.5% error to the reading

Overall average: 37.84 mpg calculated by hand
