Nice catch this stuff usually bothers me as well and I'm surprised I didn't catch it myself.

Glad to hear you are happy with the wk2 and V6.

Re: MPG V8 - 2nd update

Robert, I just returned from a nearly 2200 mile round trip to central Florida and kept records so I could see what my actual mileage was for the run. Including the "side trip diversions" in Florida while moving my parents from their single home of decades to an assisted living community as well as a customer appointment on the way north in the Hampton VA area, I managed a solid 20.22 mpg for the entire trip with a "tank" high of 21.76 mpg. I was careful to try and fill up as best as possible during fuel stops, but variation is less of a factor over that many fill-ups. The EVIC was as high as 22 mpg, but overall stayed relatively close to the actual. I did notice that the EVIC was much quicker to respond in the downward direction when idling or dealing with local stop-and-go situations than it was to climb back up for some reason.

I'm at 9.9 mpg according to the EVIC after 3/4 of a tank. This is still my "free" tank of gas after purchasing it so no hand calcs yet. All short-trip city driving. Out of curiosity, I'm focused on keeping the "Eco" light on. Rpms rarely leave 2000s. Fact is with the v8, your pouring lots of fuel into those cylinders to get this 2 1/2 ton beast moving so fuel-wise, accelerating the JCG in full trim is taxing on either engine. I look forward to see how the new 8spds perform.

Re: MPG V8 - 2nd update

My experience:

17mpg over 5000 miles hwy at 80-85 WITH THULE 1600XT pod (and bike rack on back) by calc, not computer. Computer reads .5-1mpg higher. Very very consistent, but wind-direction dependant.

This is my real world mpg. Would probably be 19 without pod at that speed.

2012 V8, sport mode or auto.
