    Not everyone gets on with the floating dashboard. Hence the Lean I think the transmission is geared for the best gas mileage around mph. It is also the same mileage I was getting on long trips in the 70 mph range.

    Volvo V50 MPG - Actual MPG from Volvo V50 owners

    Taken together, it's not surprising to see significantly worse fuel economy. In addition, there is a psychological factor. The V50 feels more like a performance car than the Passat I recently drove an '07 Passat 2. I find that I use more throttle when driving the V50 around town because it's fun - nice acceleration and exhaust tone. One thing that I found that helped, especially in town, was to be more aggressive in upshifting. For those of us that have driven a 5 speed for many years, it takes a while to realize that 5th gear is now usable at fairly low speeds, not just on the highway.

    Aside from that, we can hope that Volvo decides to sell the D5 with a manual transmission in the U. I'm using 93 octane from Hess primarily. I did find a gain of about 2 mpg by running 93 vs. Of course, in the cold weather we've been having lately, I lose mpg with the time to warm up the engine.

    As for the comments from Gromit pertaining to the D5 engine, I would love to see Volvo sell one in the States. I had a 2 week trip in the UK this summer, and averaged 40 mpg on a V50 with the D5 engine automatic trans. The difference between summers and winter tires must be due to toe in alignment, which is going to be checked next week. My tires have been wearing OK but the sticky summers are probably much more sensitive to alignment.

    BTW, many tire shops set the pressures automatically to 30psi while Volvo recommends 36psi. This affects gas mileage quite a lot. I am still puzzled because my last car AWD Eagle Talon was worse 18 mpg on the daily commute but it would get much better over 32 on a long trip.

    I average about 23mph overall - that's mostly urban trips with traffic and some hills. On long freeway trips I get up to about 28 or 29mpg. If you get a chance try this. If you get on a fairly level high way set the cruse control then reset the average mileage.

    After 15 minutes or so the fluctuations will start to average out and slow down giving you a true constant speed mileage. I tried this with my car last night and got In the next day or so I will try it a a slower speed.

    I can barely get about km out of a tankfull in winter, extremely disapointing gas mileage I use cruise whenever I can, I really like the V50's system. I then tried the trip at 62 MPH and got There is the big variance we could be seeing in peoples reported gas mileages. Quite the mileage difference for 12 MPH. I am getting a rear spoiler in the next few weeks. Now that I have a consistent test it will be interesting to see the difference it makes.

    I got 28 Mpg on just Highway - state to state - doing about 68 Mpg! Hence the Lean Brown on the Rings! This is my wifes car and most of her driving is urban and is currently getting only MPPG.

All in all, I have been extremely pleased with the Volvo as compared to the Passat. The Passat was a great car, but the V50 is clearly much better, especially in terms of handling and performance. The only area I am very displeased about is gas mileage.
