Get a diesel and get 30-35mpg
You guys must be lead foots I have an average of 17.8 on my trip computer. With just a hair over 15k miles on my 2011 HSE Lux, that is the running average since new. I mix about 50/50 hwy/city and do NOT drive it like an old lady. 8-0=
I respectfully disagree. You CAN make a Passat TDI pull on a 911 it just takes money and ingenuity. The above and several posts on this thread as so defeatist its kind of sad. NO we are never going to make the RRS get Prius gas mileage or 911 speed but that doesn't mean we can talk about ideas, mods and strategy to get there. Its worth discussing seriously and I am game to give my .02.Trying to intentionally get better mileage on a 6000 lbs beast is really an odd goal. It's not a Prius...and doesn't share any characteristics of a high mileage vehicle. It's going to range from 12-20 depending on length of trip, type of driving etc.
Flip the script and it's like saying, how can I get my Passat TDI to accelerate like my 911? It's not going to happen.
You could drive all day long with the windows open vs. the windows closed and you might get a slight delta in MPG...hardly worth the effort. The purpose of this car is NOT to get good MPG, it's a different driving experience than a Prius or Passat TDI hyper miler.
