Our family has a 1996 VW Passat wagon with the TDI & 5 spd. In the past 340,000 miles we have stayed in the 42 to 48 mpg "window" which with it's 25 gal fuel tank yields a constant 1,000 miles per fill up. I'm looking for a suitable replacement, so far nothing.
i have a 2013 sonic and live in puerto rico, with all the hills and mountains the i drive over on our highways i get 42 mpg on a long trip. on a trip where i have 4 or 5 hours of city driving included i get 37mpg.
What about the Nissan Altima 2.5, the Kia Optima 2.4, the Hyundai Sonota 2.4, plus a large number of hybrids. All that get well above the 600 mile per tank.
