You don't have to buy a hybrid to get good fuel economy. For enthusiasts who want to tread lighter, VW offers up the Jetta TDI. Like all modern diesel engines it's clean, quiet and efficient. Tom Voelk takes a look at this different way to go green.
2010 Volkswagen Jetta TDI Review, Walkaround, Exhaust, Test Drive
Apparently, Volkswagen was listening when driving enthusiasts asked for a
vehicle that could effectively blend high MPG numbers with a high fun
factor. If your primary driving consist mostly of highway drives, make sure
you check out any current Audi/Volkswagen product with their phenomenal TDI
motor. If you're commute consist primary of sitting in stop and go traffic,
a hybrid may suit you better.

Jetta TDI vs Hybrid, 1 tank to San Francisco Challenge
Matthew Welch, GM of Auburn VW believes in his New Jetta TDI so much that
he's accepted the challenge of pitting his car against the Toyota Prius for
fuel economy supremacy. He and a film crew will fill the tanks of both a
New Volkswagen Jetta TDI and the Toyota Prius in Auburn Washington.
They'll attempt to drive them both to San Francisco without stopping at a
single gas station to fill up, all under the watchful eye of the film crew
documenting everything. Which one will make the whole journey? Will either
of them even make it?
2012 Volkswagen Jetta TDI Vs. 2012 Toyota Prius
The Ultimate Commuter Car Shootout.
Fuel economy numbers are often little more than a lie printed on a piece of
paper and stuck to a car's window. That said, they can be terribly
misleading in the hunt for a fuel-efficient commuter car.
Whether you're motivated by ambition to save the environment or the simple
desire to visit the gas pump less often, two hypermiling machines stand out
above the rest, and not just for their impressive fuel economy claims
either, but because unlike nearly every other car on the market, they
exceed the already impressive EPA rated figures. These two cars are the
Volkswagen Jetta TDI and the Toyota Prius.

VW Jetta TDi 2009 Over 50 MPG
So I'm on my way home from summer vacation and it's a 10-11 hour drive over
two days. I decide to find out for absolute sure WHAT mpg this car can
get. So after a few hours on the road I pull into a truck stop (I realize
now that this time spent on the road in the beginning reduced the displayed
avg. mpg for the trip), found a small nozzle pump and start to fill up with
b5 diesel. The pump kicks off after a few gallons so, just to make sure,
I top it off just once. I pull back on the interstate, hit zero
congestion, and drive 116 miles at 60 - 65 mph. I then pull into the rest
stop. I hit the men's room (priority 1!) then went for gas. At the pump I
take it slow to try and minimize backwash. I do not try to top it off
this time. What you see here are the results.
