Besides the fact you missed his sarcasum in that, VW isnt really known for getting great gas mileage... Honda is...but VW isnt.

For instance, take the base 2006 2.4L I4 175hp Accord vs. the base 2006 2.5L I4 Altima vs. the base 2006 2.4L 165hp I4 Camry vs. the base 2006 2.5L I5 150hp Jetta.

The Accord gets 26mpg city and 34mpg highway, 30mpg overall
The Camry gets 24mpg city and 34mpg highway, 29mpg overall
The Altima gets 24mpg city and 31mpg highway, 27.5mpg overall
The JEtta gets 22mpg city and 30mpg highway, 26mpg overall

Hardly that great compared to others in its same class. A full 4mpg down overall from the best - the Accord. Just saying, VW isnt overly known for havin outstand fuel economy, at least compared to its japanese competitors.

Those can not be true numbers.

This was taken from a 5 spd manual jetta.

So cite your numbers I doubt they take in the Desiel versions and TDI's. (its the TDI's Right?)
