It’s hard to think of a time when people aren’t concerned about the price of fuel. As long as gasoline remains an essential element of the automotive industry, there will always be a market for the most fuel-efficient vehicles. The 2020 Volkswagen Passat is not the most fuel-efficient vehicle in the world, but it does quite well, all things considered. Read more below to see how the 2020 Volkswagen Passat performs when it comes to fuel. 

What MPG Does the 2020 Volkswagen Passat Get? 

One of the first things people look at on the window sticker of a 2020 Volkswagen Passat are the Miles Per Gallon (MPG) estimations. The EPA estimates the Passat to average 23 MPG with city driving, 34 MPG with highway driving, and 27 MPG with combined driving. Since these numbers are estimations, they may vary, but don’t expect a Passat to reach 40 MPG on the highway. For that kind of fuel efficiency, consider the 2020 Volkswagen Jetta.

What is the Fuel Range of the 2020 Volkswagen Passat? 

The 2020 Volkswagen Passat is built with an 18.5-gallon tank on every trim level, allowing for long drives between fueling. This makes up for its fair, but not stellar MPG rating. Drivers who only drive in the city should expect a fuel range of about 425.5 miles to a tank, but highway drivers are treated to a fantastic 629 miles of estimated distance on one tank.

What Kind of Fuel Does the 2020 Volkswagen Passat Use? 

You may already know that the Volkswagen Jetta used to come in a diesel-fuel variant at one point, and if that has you nervous about the Passat, don’t worry. The 2020 Volkswagen Passat is built for regular unleaded petroleum gasoline, making it easy to gas up anywhere. With an 18.5 Gallon tank, you may find the Passat costs a bit more than some other sedans to fill up, but that fuel will last you for a while, even with city driving.
