Driving how fast? How does that compare to its EPA estimated highway mpg at fueleconomy.gov?

17 city - 23 hwy is what is listed.
And under 70mph for the trip. Maybe you are right saying it's like a rounded off brick in the wind!

Wanted mods include: Mirror & roof rack delete, grill block, LRR tires on skinny wheels(custom wheels on it now) with solid wheel covers, front air dam and or lower the van. The van runs and drives so good it is a shame it does not get better MPG's.

I'm making the exact same trip leaving this evening but this time I'm taking my 1996 Passat TDI on it's first road trip since I've owned it. It is rated at 31 city and 41 highway. The last tank with combined city and highway driving was 921.1 miles on 18.56gal = 49.6mpg. I'm already over 20% above the Gov estimated highway figure. I've heard that these Passat TDI's can get in mid 50's and over 1000 miles on a tank. Still working out the bugs and the last owners neglect :-(
