I think TurboEddie is telling a tall tale. My 2010 Jetta with the 2.0l TDI which is over 600 lbs lighter didn't get 45-47. I traded that one in after 18 mos of service for an '11 d, which I hot-footed from Portland to SF and got 35mpg. Could I have gotten better than 35? Yes. 45-47 would have required a tailwind and probably a cliff to drive off of.

I've read your posts about the Wagner IC and I want one. But, I know better than to expect 40+ highway just because I have a better IC.
