2015 Volkswagen Golf gas mileage
Spring is slowly coming along, and with each day we step outside to warmer temperatures and the sounds of birds, we’re reminded that road trip season is just around the corner. Taking a road trip is a fantastic way to get out and see some of the crazy and beautiful things our country has to offer, but summer means rising fuel costs too. If you’re looking to go the distance, you may be wondering about the 2015 Volkswagen Golf gas mileage. Let’s investigate how far you could be going on just one tank of gas.
Though each trim style for the 2015 VW Golf has the same 13.2 gallon fuel tank, there is a slight difference between the 2-door and 4-door styles. They both get an EPA estimated 25 city mpg rating, with the 2-door receiving 37 highway and the 4-door getting a 36 highway rating. Not a big difference, but it will lose you 13.2 miles per tank. Considering the convenience of having extra doors, it’s likely well worth the loss. The real difference is going to be your Golf TDI trim, Volkswagen’s take on Clean Diesel. With an mpg rating of 30 city/45 highway, you’ll definitely notice a difference in your distance. Approximately 119 miles extra distance can be gained over the 4-door model gasoline trim. No, we’re not kidding.
For those who like numbers, the 2015 VW Golf Gas mileage can be broken down to 330-488.4 miles for the 2-door, 330-475.2 for the 4-door, and a stellar 396-594 miles per tank of gas for the diesel TDI trim.
Some of you may be paying attention at the pump and scratching your chin when it comes to gasoline prices versus diesel. Not to worry, at the current rates your total price increase for buying a full tank of diesel instead of gasoline would be roughly $5. Considering the extra gas mileage the TDI gets, you’ll definitely see more of the countryside if you decide on diesel.
