Although no one buys this car for fuel economy there are times when you are forced to drive eco slowly and that time was this morning.
On my trip to work I put the car in Eco mode too see what mpg I could achieve. The outcome was 40mpg (through morning town traffic, cold start with the engine on about 200 miles).
VW quote 40.4mpg on the Combined Cycle so it's in line with their data.
Impressive for such a short distance!
