32 is really good for the 2.0T. I've had a handful of fill-ups under 40 mpg in 41,000 miles. I usually get 42-43, and on long highway trips I get 50+
My fuel savings have easily paid the whole diesel thing off - literally and in terms of my satisfaction with the car. I would never consider going gas with this car.
