    We've been watching your progress already and wondering when the 'dialog' might begin.

    So have you posted any mileage metrics?

    Stats? I'm interested to see the difference between the two.

    They say stats at the end. It isn't the end yet, it would appear.

    The website says 7,800 miles.

    It also has said details will be posted.

    2 weeks after the drive completed, still nothing.

    That's the purpose stated, along with a photo of the Jetta TDI.

    The bias is obvious... even without knowing the history of those involved.

    Whatever the case, we are still waiting for those fuel consumption results.

    Maybe the TDI broke down before the end.
