The fuel economy is amazing for a fairly large sedan. I can amek 38 mpg on back rural roads if I really tried. Driving "normally" on the same roads I acheive a consistant 34 mpg. My 40 minute higheay commute at 80mph achieves 35 mpg. CC ranges 520 miles.

The cc can easily get 30+ mpg. Coupled with a large fuel tank allows the cc to get 500+ miles on a single tank of gas.

Im coming from a Dodge Ram Mega Cab. There is nothing not to like about the CC fuel economy. After about 2 weeks Im getting around 425 miles to the 18.5 gallon tank.

Not the greatest, and requires premium. The dealer will weasel this, but 50k miles down the road, you will see why premium was required. That a 10% of better hit on fuel costs.

was hoping for 22-23 mpg with the all wheel drive and 6cyl. i only have 1500 miles on it so it may improve but so far 20-21 mpg is all i am getting
 

Volkswagen CC Gas Mileage (MPG)

Unlike other fuel economy surveys, TrueDelta's Real-World Gas Mileage Survey includes questions about how and where a car was driven. So you can get an idea of the Volkswagen CC's real-world MPG based on how and where you drive a car.
