The best I've seen over a full tank in my GTI is 33mpg. That is very little interstate driving and mostly my 6 mile commute that is all 55mph highway, no stop signs, no stop lights. It is pretty much ideal driving conditions for fuel economy. Then slap on the fact my GTI is FWD, 6MT, and a smaller displacement, direct injected, turbo powerplant. I just find your numbers optimistic. (Note: I track my mileage and the amount of gas I put in the car at every single fill-up, dating back to July of 07.)
