I have 2011 Jetta TDI 6 spd manual. I live in Vermont and have a 50 mile commute each way. The car has 7600 miles on it. My commute is on the highway with cruise set in the low 70's. Based upon 80% highway I am averaging an actual 43 to 45 mpg. Extended highway driving will provide 50 MPG with ease and I have never gotten less than 40mpg.
Also if you like performance--buy the TDI! The TDI is praised for outstanding fuel economy but the torque will amaze you--the TDI should be advertised as a fuel efficient performance car.

after 13389 in my manual 2012 Jetta TDI
Overall mpg: 39.9
average mix: 65/35 highway city
Best mpg: 90/10 highway city mix was 43.7
worst: 36.6, with lots of winter heat and idling.
On a 250 mile drive to Chicago have averaged well over 46mpg on highway.
Not sure what you ended up doing, but the Jetta TDI really does get solid gas mileage.
