With all the randomn discussions around fuel mileage, I've decided to test some results over the next few days as I rack up break-in mileage on my 3.3t. Today was a test using the economy mode with the advanced setting that decouples the transmission during deceleration. I have a 34 mile daily round trip commute with 75% interstate and 25% downtown stop and go traffic. Staying light on the throttle and using cruise, I had a round trip average of 27.8 mpg per the onboard computer. Not sure how accurate the onboard computers are now, but this seems on par with many of the competitors. But I had to be extremely calm and collective to keep my foot from going deeper. Tomorrow, I'll see how it goes with sport mode and reserved "spirited" throttle application. Then, when I'm done, a big glass of bourbon to calm the nerves as I refrain from hammering the throttle for now. What are your tricks to reserve fuel when not having fun?
