2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI: Fuel Economy Update for June — Incremental Improvement in Lifetime MPG
July 13, 2015
Our long-term 2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI is still shy of its EPA combined rating of 28 mpg, but this month it climbed one-tenth of a mpg closer. After receiving its 10,000-mile service, and a new battery for its key fob, the GTI spent the month of June quietly logging miles.
We added 1,481 of them this month, consuming 61.1 gallons of gas in the process, and upping the GTI's lifetime average to 26.4 mpg.
While the best-fill award stands at 34.5 mpg, Josh Sadlier got close in June with a 31.7 mpg fill. He also thinks customers looking to buy a GTI would be better served with a pre-owned Mk6 model, while Brent wants a Mk7 of his own.
