That sounds incredible! Will you be making your own 'bespoke' exhaust for it?

Location is behind the Loblaws warehouse off Maple Grove. It would actually be pretty nice if I had a tripod. There's a huge long section of grass about 20' wide with those big lights all along it and sod field in the background. I think it would be a cool group panoramic shot with each car under one lamp.

I think this must have been a beach buggy or the owner lived on a dirt road. There's sand everywhere.

You'll find a difference in fuel economy for sure.

Average

* MPG/fuel-up: 29.8
* L/100km/fuel-up: 7.9
* km/fuel-up: 422.9
* Price/fuel-up: $0.97
* Total/fuel-up: $11.94
Completely city km.

I estimated the fill up that vw did, but they charged me $65 so I assume it was a full tank. When I test drove it, it was just below 1/4. Computer shows average of 15.3l/100km or thereabouts. That represents a lot of showing people the new car, too. Five of us know what that means :P

like I said, I educatedly estimated the first fuel up so the next one will be more accurate. But my onboard diagnostic center says I'm averaging just over 15 l/100km which means I'm somewhat off ;) BUT, I don't know how it averages... if it takes a reading every five seconds or something then averages those, I can see it being low. During that tank, there were many times it was in the high 90s l/100km :lol: . I'm really interested to drive it somewhat conservatively this tank and see where it goes. I'm also the only W8 on Fuelly.

The Jetta was somewhere around 22mpg.
