Man, gotta love those TDI's!!!

The sportwagen is a lot of fun to drive, even without the higher torque of the diesel but it's impossible to beat 47 mpg.

I think the 2015 TDI is going to be a collector car at some point, or at least highly sought after. The MQB chassis is so good and has the bones for all of the tech upgrades that came later on in the generation. Keep the diesel going and you can up-spec the TDI wagens to something extremely special.

Quick and small road trip update. Drove to the Finger Lakes region on Friday, came home Sunday. One of my friends rode with, car was completely loaded down with food, drinks, coolers, all kinds of ****, not really any space left, roof box was loaded, and I had my BMX bike on the roof, as well.

Got 39.5mpg for the trip. Up and back landed me at 450ish miles, about 160 of those miles were with cruise at 76mph up and down the mountains between Williamsport and NY. Pretty good considering the speed, the constant full boost pulls up the mountains, the weight, the loss of aero, etc.
