    Soory to say that but these are naturally aspirated engines, so MPG will be low. You should try TDI's... average MPG is 49....

    I dont know if this helps try cleaning or replacing the g46 sensor on the back of the manifold its behind the vacum pipes on the black inlet plenum. its one screw and an o ring.

    This is the air temp sensor. Mine was a wee bit black and since cleaning with contact cleaner the cars as sweet as ever.
