You do have to remember that my engine and also other parts of the car have 260000+kilometers in the odometer. I believe that specially the turbo is not in mint condition after those miles. Plans are to change it to newer version and get better efficiency at the same time.

The Passat avg speed was only 40 MPH or so. At that speed lupo would hit 117 MPG on stock condition.
