I've been doing some tracking on my miles and fuel consumption until a quarter tank is left, and I usually travel rush hour traffic highway and city, I'm only getting 19 mpg.. Something seem off. what is everybody else getting?
Sounds pretty realistic to me based on how heavy your right foot is. I'm a very relaxed driver in my car and I get like 23 mpg. Entirely city driving though.
good decisions - '05 sti, '07 wrx, '07 & '08gsxr-600s, '03 20th gti #1, '12 jetta, '14 sportwagen
bad decisions - '04 frontier s/c, '04 tt 3.2l, '03 tdi wagon, '03 20th gti #2, '05 s4
I would average anywhere from 23 to 26 with a very heavy right foot on my 2.5 Auto. That was mostly city driving with a small amount of highway from time to time.

I got about 19 - 21 average on my SE 2.5... getting 30-32 routinely on my GLI
been tracking fuel consumption since day 1 on my 2.5.
My current average is 27.823mpg and all time low is 23.037mpg and all time high is 32.811 mpg. This is with just shy of 20k miles on the car. My driving is about 65% highway and 35% traffic.
I've also been cycling different octane fuels every 5000 miles to determine if there is a difference. There isn't (with this car). So just stick to regular, you won't get more mpg's out of premium.
325 miles with 12 gallons is 27mpg. Which if your computer is as crappy as mine, should be about right. I filled up at 167 miles yesterday, gauge said I was in between 50% and 75% full and at 28.3mpg and the true value I hand calculated was 24.9... a whopping 3.4mpg difference, crappy computer!! lol
on my sel, ive normally got anywhere between 19 if im gassing it, and 23 if i just let it sit on cruise control all the time.. right now my avg on the jetta is saying 26-27.. why, i dunno but im not complaining.. but i will complain because i can only go 180 more miles on my tank, and only got 140 miles on my tank.. which is going to tell me im getting roughly 21 mpg when i fill up -.-
