Mammoth Mountain or bust in our Golf TDI

Parker Lake Mammoth Mountain, CAOur annual summer trip up to Mammoth Mountain is one I really look forward to. This would be the first time in our Golf TDI so I was really excited to see what kind of mileage I could squeeze out of it.

Of course the two Ellsworth Mountain Bikes along with 5 days of luggage packed into the hatchback weren’t really going to help things.

Once we arrived, the Golf TDI served as our taxi as we explored the beautiful lakes and mountains around Mammoth.

We averaged over 43 mpg on the way up and back from Mammoth which is great considering all the weight and the occasional “lead foot” required to pass the big semi-trucks on Hwy 395. 🙂
