Looking forward to it!

So first long trip in a long time (due to lock-down). Sion to Bourg en Bresse in France. About 300km each way, downhill and uphill.

3.6l/100km one way and 4.1l/100 back, so 3.8l/100km in average (61-62mpg US). Not bad considering GPS speed was 100km/h in Switzerland, 110 in France (105 and 115 tacho). The wind was globally not helping, most of time against me...

Certainly not bad at those speeds, you maniac
Really promising, that's the Greenline idea.

You have installed the grill cover?

Nope! Not received it I think there was an issue with the order. I'll have to look about this this weekend.

But I always fold my passenger mirror, which according to my calculation has an impact of about 0.1l/100km.

So did a 600km trip through Switzerland, went to Lake Lucerne, GraubŁnden over some famous passes (Furkapass you can see in Goldfinger movie).

Here at the Rhonegletscher, the source of the Rhone river.
The car was full (5 adults + luggage for 4 days) and did a lot of uphill driving. In the end fuel efficiency was 4.5l/100km

Well, that's a lot of heights that have been conquered! It's the ideal car for a such a road trip. You've got a very long gear for highway speeds and the great torque of the TDI drags to conquer every mountain. Beside that, I'm always amazed at how spacious these cars are.
