Metrompg of course. I guess I have been here a while. No new mods for me this year but I did put together a couple of new threads and did some testing with the extra time provided by COVID lockdown.

I have been driving even less than in the before times.
60 mpg hwy highest, 50+mpg lifetime
TDi=fast frugal fun
