2014 Volkswagen Passat TSI: Fuel Economy Update for May
June 5, 2014
Back in March, we set a new low for fuel economy in our 2014 Volkswagen Passat TSI at 21.1 mpg. In May that figure dropped even lower to our worse tank yet, just 18.7 mpg.
With our best fill holding at 33 mpg, our new lifetime average for the car is now less than 26 mpg, or 2 mpg lower than the EPA's combined city/highway rating of 28 mpg.
With approximately 10,000 miles left to go during our long-term test, we have another five months to see if a few more road trips help improve the Passat TSI's fuel economy figures.
Worst Fill MPG: 18.7
Best Fill MPG: 33.0
