I think our Sheetz Flex Fuel is pretty crappy. Need to get a tester.

i'm also experiencing worse MPG with this tweak but i love the way the car feels. smooth, responsive power with no jerkiness at all. fueling between shifts has definitely improved. also, while cruising on the highway i can roll on power from lower RPM than usual and have the car respond immediately with smooth acceleration. dig it.

Just wanted to chime in as well. Made this change, love it. Car no longer feels sluggish/slow to accelerate in 1st-3rd gears in D mode (most noticeable). Ride also feels a little smoother overall.

I made the change and honestly can’t tell the difference. Car is DSG Clubsport.
My guess is that the option disables the “learning” off your driving style and instead makes it linear. Which might explain why some feel a difference and others don’t.

You might be on to something there. When I switched back to incremental after a week of direct, the change that direction was much less obvious.

Youíre getting worse MPG because youíre using more throttle. Thatís all
