One thing that has not been brought up, is that diesel EPA mileage numbers aren't as accurate as gas numbers. Most diesel owners would agree that the break in for a diesel motor can be quite long. Just compare how many people are crying about their mileage on the hybrid forums to how many people on the TDI forums that get much more than the EPA says they will.
