2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI: Fuel Economy Update for February
March 4, 2015
The staff piled on about 1,200 miles during the shortest month of the year, and the running fuel economy average for our 2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI ticked up wee-bit from 25.8 to 26.0 mpg. At this rate, it looks doubtful we will ever achieve the EPA's estimated 28 mpg combined unless the car goes on several more highway-intensive road trips.
Also, it appears the car's self-reported "Extend. Period" fuel economy runs a bit optimistic.
Worst Fill MPG: 19.4 (unchanged)
Best Fill MPG: 31.9 (unchanged)
Average Lifetime MPG: 26.0 (up from 25.8)
EPA MPG Rating: 28 Combined (25 City/33 Highway)
Best Range: 333.8 (unchanged)
Current Odometer: 7,318 (up from 6,083)
