How fast have you gone in 5th gear? I've gotten up to 140mph in 5th. Does anyone know at what speed 5th gear ends at. How fast do you think an MKV can really go.

? 1.04 is $ 1.93. That makes $ 8.77 per gallon

Your math is slightly flawed.

It'd be less than $8 a gallon.
$ 1.93 per liter

4.546 liters per gallon

$ 1.93 x 4.546 = $ 8.77

I used the UK gallon to count it, cause the guy who posted the price for a gallon is from the UK.

If you use the US Gallon it would be:

$ 1.93 per liter

3.785 liter per gallon

$ 1.93 x 3.785 = $ 6.93

I don`t exactly how fast 5th ends at but it seems definitely over 125 which is the fasted I have on 5th gear.

93 oct. in Miami, Fl I fill up at $2.89 US.

With a hook up I got 100 oct. for about $3.50 US.

I don't know about the GTI, but most 6 speed cars top out in 5th gear. They say it runs 146mph stock, it didn't say what gear they ended up in.
