2012 Volkswagen Beetle Turbo: Fuel Economy Update for March
April 3, 2013
Another month and another fuel economy update for our boosted 2012 Volkswagen Beetle. The month of March saw us wind nearly 1,000 miles onto the odometer as well as up the lifetime average from 23.9 to 24.2 miles per gallon.
Of note, the last three tanks have all been burned on long distance highway trips and have all returned numbers just shy of the car's EPA rating of 30 mpg.
Worst Fill MPG: 15.8
Best Fill MPG: 32.6
Average Lifetime MPG: 24.2
EPA MPG Rating (city/highway/combined): 22/30/25
Current Odometer: 17,201 miles
