"At 8,300 miles, sustained highway speeds of 75-80 with short 90 mph bursts and still seeing 24-25 mpg. Combined with 18-20 mpg around town.
I have no complaints with that level of fuel economy compared to the performance this car is capable of"
Interesting, at 4,300 miles, sustained highway speeds of 75-80, with short 90+ mph bursts, I also see 24-25-26 mpg. In my 911S Cabriolet. In our Acura TL 6-speed, loaded with the family and luggage, we're at 29-30 mpg.
And, in both cases, I have no complaints compared to the performance capabilities.

I don't know the city mileage, because I only used my Maxima for trips of 200 miles or more. I never averaged less than 28 mpg for any trip taken, and I did get 34 mpg on one trip from Indianapolis to Allentown, PA.
I just traded for a 2006 Passat 3.6L. I hope my mileage will be just as good.

Sorry to let you down pal, but you will never get better then 21-23mpg in youre new 3.6L Passat. At least you have the comfort of knowing you are almost a second faster 0-60 then the 2.0 Turbo, too bad you have to run Full Syn Oil and Premium gas, thats gona hurt a bit.

On the highway a 3.6 Passat does much better than 23 mpg.

On five hundred mile trips I got an average of twenty six point one driving about eighty mph....On one trip I got stuck in a long jam and the mpg dropped to twenty five and a half....Around town around eighteen or so...I don`t pay that much attention as the trips are very short...The engine is 4.2 v 8 tony
