2011 Volkswagen Jetta TDI: Beating the EPA is Easy

February 27, 2012

Even with the optimistic self-reporting of which most cars are guilty, I was able to eclipse the Volkswagen Jetta TDI's EPA estimated Highway fuel economy of 42 mpg. I set the cruise to 76 mph and ran the AC the entire 250-mile distance to produce this 44 mpg average. I'm fairly certain this car can get 45 mpg. What are "hyper-milers" getting, 50 mpg?
