Despite some reliability issues and the tarnishing of TDI with dieselgate, I still like my older TDI. With winterized fuel and mostly highway trips, I was still able to get over 45 mpg and 600 miles of range. I knew how far it was to the station I usually use, so I chose to live dangerously 10 miles range according to the MFD and the gauge was at E when I filled up. I've had to drive it below 0 miles of range left so I knew there was still some range remaining below 10 miles. That instance wasn't my fault and your mileage may vary (literally).
