My Alltrack, now with 15k miles, has loosened up and gets even better economy than it did when new.
On a 32-mile route to Denver International Airport today I got 45.3 MPG. I measure it by selecting the Average MPG page in the Golf’s Multifunction Display, then pressing the OK button on the steering wheel after I’m on the freeway. It’s the best way to measure highway economy IMHO.
I drove at or above the speed limit, in 6th gear as much as possible, and not at all aggressively. Voila, 45 MPG.
