Pretty good MPG's

Took a day and drove into IL to check on some stuff and the ol'jetta did pretty good. Topped off the tank just before I left and ended up with 605miles round trip. Computer says 53.3 average...still had about 1/8th tank. I'll hand calc on fillup but this computer has been close since weve had it. Thought I would share.
