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.

EDIT: WHAAAAT!? Almost 10k views?! Well I guess this means I gotta put
up some kind of follow up video....

Why there isn't, or shouldn't be, ads on my videos...EVER.
2009 Jetta TDI first dyno
Tuned by MALONE TUNING LTD http://www.malonetuning.com
Stock results on Dyno:
133hp and 225ft-lb torque (VW advertises 140HP).
After MALONE TUNING LTD remap ("chip tuning") on Dyno: 168hp and 315ft-lb torque
(without line smoothing) 163hp and 295ft-lb (with line smoothing).
This is one of the most conservative Dyno machines around, with
real-world no-nonsense horsepower + torque numbers.
The car drives as smooth as glass on the street.
