2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI: Fuel Economy Update for December
January 7, 2015
Our 2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI was driven more than 1,500 miles in the month of December. It made seven trips to the gas station, with one of those fills being the lowest mpg to date.
The GTI averaged about 25.4 mpg in December, which is right on par with the lifetime mpg of 25.5, but still lower than the EPA combined estimate of 28 mpg.
One fill last month, at 21.2 mpg, was the worst tank to date for the GTI. This didn't get us any closer to the EPA number.
The GTI is only a couple of months old in our fleet, so there's plenty of time to hit better fuel numbers.
Here's how the rest of the numbers shaped out:
Worst Fill MPG: 21.1
Best Fill MPG: 30.2
Average Lifetime MPG: 25.5
EPA MPG Rating: 28 Combined (25 City/33 Highway)
Best Range: 330.8
Current Odometer: 4,195 miles
