I’m a careful Golf Alltrack owner. Maybe paranoid. Whatever the case, I take good care of her.
- I never go past 3k RPM until oil temp is > 180
- 4/5 times I fill her up with Shell premium — 5/5 times premium
- I never take it to car washes
I have to work to get under 23 MPG city, for trips over 8 miles or so. The engine has loosened up. This is an improvement since the first month of ownership, when my Alltrack was averaging 23 MPG.
