    Question 1998 A3 1.6 sport MPG?

    Hi, I was just wondering if you know from personal experience what the MPG is of a 1998 A3 sport 1.6 petrol? A friend wants to sell it to me and I currently have a 1995 Volvo 2.5 960 which is extremely petrol inefficient and am looking for a nice upgrade. Various websites hint to around 40MPG but I was wondering if this might be correct. Thanks!

    I can get around 40mpg on my 1.8t so I'm sure 40mpg must be about right for a 1.6. Sure someone with first hand experience will be able to definitely let you know though.

    On a good long run, 40mpg is easy in the s3, around town it's a struggle to get above 25!
