Typically, real-world fuel-economy numbers are lower than EPA estimates, but not when Don takes the wheel. He averaged 46.87 mpg with the 2012 Volkswagen Passat, exceeding the highway estimate by 6.87 mpg.

At Consumer Guide HQ, we all have our little areas of expertise. Ed Piotrowski is always upgrading his electronic gadgets, and he understands better than anybody on the staff the good and bad qualities in every car’s connectivity options. I bet Ed even knows what Pandora is. Jack Stewart knows Jaguars. Rick Cotta can recall which cars have good outward visibility like nobody in the business. What’s my claim to fame? Somehow, it has ended up being fuel economy. I’m almost always the office gas-mileage champ.
