      Just curious what Tig SEL 4Motion owners are seeing as real world mpg's with the new AT programming and the 19" wheels.

      Thanks

      69 views and no comments. Maybe because I didn't specify for a 4Motion. And I'm sure there are way more 4motion Tigs than non.

      i get less mpg than Vw say and is because the truck is brand new so i need to ride it couple of time before i give you an exact estimate.

      I think we discussed it in an earlier thread, but typically my numbers match up to the 21/27 pretty well. (I have 4Motion too).

      Less than 3000 miles on ours - mixed driving with lots of short trips - the readout on the MFD set for #2 (cumulative MPG over time up to 9999 miles) is 23.3 MPG... keeps going up incrementally over time.

      So today (May 11th), the MFD #2 setting jumped up to 26.8 MPG! Almost as if all the old initial break-in period low MPGs were suddenly overcome by all the new and higher MPG data.
