I hear the new passat in europe gets 70mpg. Are the guys making these claims converting UK gallons to US gallons and are they converting kilometers to miles? 70 kilometers/UK gallon comes out awfully close to 40 miles/US gallon

Probably a small TDI engine option available in Europe that we'll never see in the US... Confirmed on volkswagen.co.uk BlueMotion 1.6Ltr TDI with 6spd Manual...combined fuel consumption is 68.9 miles per gallon (imperial). That equates to about 57mpg US.
