Did not get all the info, but my last tank I was very happy to get 26mpg on mostly hwy, but some city driving. I tried that tank to shift just below 3k and keep it around 2k as much as possible. I also used 5th gear all the time.

Recently I've been getting 30.5-31.5 in my RS. I got a job as a courier, and it's 90% freeway miles. What amazes me is that I can get that much with 5-700 pounds of stuff filling the trunk and backseat!

So, uh, what was your mileage? You know, miles travelled divided by gallons used?

This car is currently in break-in mode so MPG should be a bit high.
