EPA posts 2009 VW TDI fuel economy numbers

Posted By on May 21, 2008

EPA numbersThe U.S. Department of Energy‘s FuelEconomy website has updated numbers posted for the ‘soon to be released’ (summer 2008) Volkswagen Jetta and Sportswagen TDI clean diesels. The new fuel use numbers show miles per gallon economy for the six-speed manual version at 30 city, 41 highway and at 34 combined. The DSG automatic transmission are nearly as efficient at just a single MPG lower for each number. As the acronym often states … YMMV (Your Mileage May Vary), but I suspect that many TDI buyers will comfortably see better economy from these new TDIs. (drivers of the test vehicles have noted 50 mpg on highway loops)
