I don't have DRLs on my (or Mrs A's TDIs) but we both run with headlights on (Xenons).

The result may be 1-2% MPG loss but to be honest a mistake on timing a light or timing a lane change or selecting when to shift up/down on a hill may make the same difference for or against FE on most journeys.

The positive result of lights on is that we have cut down the number of people pulling out without 'seeing' us by quite a bit. It is amazing how many do a double-take before deciding not to set off from a side road or change lanes.

So I'll stick with the lights.
